Running these ads in Arkansas may likely only strengthen vulnerable incumbent Mark Pryor.
A large gun advocacy group is hitting its first Democrat in their most recent campaign to increase gun control measures.
Mayors Against Illegal Guns, founded by independent New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, announced an ad Friday criticizing Democratic Sen. Mark Pryor for his recent vote against gun legislation in the Senate, including expanding background checks.
A spokesperson for the organization that includes mayors from across the country said they are putting $350,000 into 30-second spot, which features a woman who lost her friend to gun violence.
The left pretends they’re against big money outsiders poking their nose into politics. Curiously they’re silent when this moron throws his money around.
Pryor, who also knew the gun victim, said in a statement the ad is politicizing his death by “misleading people into thinking that his bill would have prevented Bill Gwatney’s tragic death. The fact is it wouldn’t have, which makes Mayor Bloomberg’s ad even more disgusting.”
What does it matter when Bloomberg can dance on the graves of the dead so long as he gets his way? Although we don’t think this intimidation will work. If anything, it will make Pryor more resolute, and if he somehow loses a primary it’s even more likely a Republican will win the seat.
