Bloomberg Gun Control Lobby Flushes Another $400K In Virginia Governors Race
Michael Bloomberg?s gun-control advocacy organization announced Monday it will contribute an additional $700,000 toward 2017 Virginia elections.
The group, Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund, pledged to contribute $400,000 to Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam?s campaign and $300,000 to to Democratic Attorney General Mark Herring?s re-election bid in the final two weeks of the race, according to The Washington Post. This latest pledge comes atop a previous commitment of $1 million in combined contributions to the pair of Democratic candidates, bringing the group?s total spending on Virginia races to almost $2 million.
The latest influx of cash comes amid an increasingly close Virginia gubernatorial race. The latest round of polling from Monmouth University has the election deadlocked with Republican Ed Gillespie leading 48 to 47 percent.
Everytown also announced they would redirect $90,000 additionally intended for mailers toward radio ads targeting black Americans. The ad shares the story of Lucy McBath, a black woman whose son was shot and killed at a Florida gas station.
