Anti-Second Amendment Billionaire Supporting Mark Begich’s Re-Election Bid
Billionaire former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has made it clear he will back candidates looking to erode the Second Amendment and just this week he donated $2.5 million to Harry Reid’s Super PAC, which is supporting Mark Begich's campaign.
The Treadwell for Senate campaign released the following statement regarding Bloomberg's tacit support of Mark Begich's campaign and urging Begich to reject any help from Reid's Super PAC:
“This week, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg donated $2.5 million to Harry Reid’s Super PAC. Reid’s PAC has already aired ads on Mark Begich’s behalf. It’s no secret that Michael Bloomberg wants to undermine the Second Amendment and clearly he sees Harry Reid and Mark Begich as allies in his crusade. Begich has forgotten where he’s from and Alaskans deserve better. Begich should reject any support from a PAC clearly focused on eroding the Second Amendment.” Fred Brown, Treadwell for Senate campaign spokesman
