"Bloomy’s arrogance blinds him to the fact that northeast liberals like himself and his anti-gun message aren’t exactly popular in states like Arkansas and North Carolina."
Mike Bloomberg has never been fond of firearms and after Newtown, the outgoing New York City mayor threw what remains of his national political clout behind gun-control measures.
Now, Mayor Bloomberg is a very bright guy, but no one is ever going to accuse him of modesty. And he's been extremely vocal about gun control. Bloomberg put $12 million behind an ad buy pushing for tighter regulations. Bloomberg's ads have run in 13 states and target both Democratic and Republican senators who Bloomberg apparently believes did not listen to their constituents during the gun votes.
The problem? The people Bloomberg is attacking have begun wearing his condemnation as a badge of honor.
