Billionaire Michael Bloomberg promises to spend $50 million to give the NRA a run for its money. Bloomberg will single out Washington State—and women—to achieve his goals. Oregon Live,
“With his new pledge of $50 million, Bloomberg plans to put less focus on television advertising and more on organizing aimed at encouraging like-minded voters to participate in elections. One of the new organization’s major target groups: women.
“The organization said it will focus on pushing for expanded background checks on gun purchasers in Congress and will also support an initiative that would tighten background checks in Washington state. (Washington state voters will also consider a competing initiative that would block the state from enacting tougher gun laws than those required by the federal government).”
