New York City Mayor Bloomberg, not content with being the chief engineer of the nanny state in New York, has again decided to bring his passion for constricting freedom to Virginia. The Billionaire Mayor ,is again throwing cash at those candidates running for office in our Commonwealth, in the hopes of further promoting his number one passion, that being Gun Control. Yes, having not learned his lesson from the last time he tried to venture south on his quest to influence our elections, the know it all mayor, is throwing some cash at Democrat Candidate for Senate, Mark Herring.
This from Bloombergs website.
“Mike Bloomberg is supporting the campaigns of Sen. Toddy Puller (Fairfax), Sen. Dave Marsden (Fairfax), Sen. George Barker (Prince William), Sen. Mark Herring (Loudoun), Sen. John Miller (Newport News) and Barbara Favola, who is running for an open seat in Arlington.”
Mayor Bloomberg tried this once before and was sent packing by Virginia voters. The Mayor thought at the time that it would be a good idea to promote candidates who shared his passion for Gun Control. One such candidate Jeannemarie Devolites Davis, an incumbant Republican Senator from Fairfax, and wife of former Congressman Tom Davis, thought it a smart electoral tactic to embrace the gun grabbing nanny state mayor and campaign on restricting the rights of gun owners in Virginia. Her public appearances with Mayor Bloomberg galvanized conservatives and gun rights organizations such as VCDL and the NRA. As they say, the rest is history,Jeannemarie lost, her elected political career over, all because she foolishly decided it was a good idea to join forces with an out of state liberal Mayor, who is hell bent on restricting the freedoms of Virginians. Remember it is Mayor Bloomberg who wants to dictate what you eat, your salt intake, as well as ban your firearms.
Mark Herring has spent his political career pretending to be a centrist , however, if you examine his voting record closely, he is nothing more than a down the line progressive, who like Mayor Bloomberg believes he knows what is best for you. Mark Herring like the nanny state mayor believes you lack the ability to decide what is best for you and your family, and it is the state that must act on your behalf. He like Bloomberg, is no friend of freedom.
