Today, an article published by Roll Call highlighted that Harry Reid’s Senate Majority PAC is once again pouring money into Louisiana to defend Mary Landrieu’s liberal record.
According to reports, former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg donated $2.5 million to Reid’s Senate Majority PAC just 72 hours before the Majority PAC bought additional air time in Louisiana.
In 2013, Bloomberg’s gun control group, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, spent $12 million pushing President Obama’s legislation to restrict Second Amendment rights.
In April of 2013, Landrieu voted for Senate Democrats’ expansive gun control bill(Senate Roll Call Vote #97, 4/17/2013).
“After voting for Obamacare and legislation that would restrict Louisianans’ Second Amendment rights, out of state liberal special interest groups are clearly trying to distract from Senator Landrieu’s out-of-touch record," LAGOP Spokesman Ryan Cross said. "There is no amount of money Michael Bloomberg or Harry Reid can spend to hide Mary Landrieu’s liberal record from the people of Louisiana.”
