Bloomberg’s Gun Control Money Flops as Virginia GOP holds State Senate

Hehe, that wound is going to hurt for Michael Bloomberg [1] and all the gun control money he’s spent on a campaign cycle that didn’t go his way:

A gun control group chaired by Michael Bloomberg was unable to shift control of the Virginia legislature on Tuesday despite spending more than $2.4 million.

Everytown for Gun Safety, a non-profit group chaired by the billionaire former mayor of New York City, spent [2] $2,368,655 in support of five Virginia state senate races and one house race. The group gave another $40,000 to Common Good VA, a PAC formed by Gov. Terry McAuliffe that contributed most of its money to races that Everytown targeted. The donations were part of an effort by gun control advocates to prove their cause could win at the ballot box despite decades of conventional wisdom saying otherwise.
