Virginia Voters Reject Bloomberg’s Anti-Gun Surrogate

Bloomberg-Endorsed Anti-Gun Candidate Goes Down in Defeat!

In an uncommon move, New York City Mayor and gun ban crusader Michael Bloomberg weighed in on a Virginia State Senate race.  In Virginia’s 34th Senate district, Mayor Bloomberg endorsed soon-to-be-former State Senator Jeannemarie Devolites Davis (R).  Not only did the Mayor fly to Virginia to hold a press conference announcing his support of Davis, but the two also did a television interview on CNN’s “The Situation Room”, just days before the election, touting Sen. Davis’s support for more gun control.  Appearing on a national news broadcast to highlight gun control in a state senate race certainly would qualify as a rare occurrence.  But Mike Bloomberg is a “one trick pony” who never misses an opportunity to promote himself or his anti-gun agenda—even when it leads to the defeat of a lawmaker he endorsed. 

Last Tuesday, Davis lost her re-election bid by more than 10 points to Democrat Chap Petersen.  Petersen previously served in the House of Delegates, where he was a member of the House Militia, Police and Public Safety Committee; the House committee that hears most, if not all, of the gun-related bills in the General Assembly. During his tenure in the House, Petersen voted in support of:  Right- to-Carry reforms, preemption, and easing the restrictions relative to one-gun-a-month. These are the votes Davis highlighted in her mail, radio, and TV attacks on Petersen during the campaign.  

When voters in Virginia’s 34th Senate district went to the polls, they were faced with a clear choice.  Wisely, the voters resoundingly chose to ignore Mayor Bloomberg’s recommendation. 

This election should send a strong and powerful message to politicians across the country running for office at all levels and to Mayor Bloomberg:  those who campaign against the Second Amendment do so at their own peril!
