The Everytown For Gun Safety organization, founded by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, is spending $4.5 million in a home-stretch ad effort aimed at hitting Republican candidates over the issue of gun safety and COVID-19 in key battleground states, the group said Monday.
“As COVID-19 rates rise and gun violence continues to claim 100 American lives a day, (they are counting suicide which is 60% of total lives lost). Everytown is doubling down on our work to hold politicians accountable for failing to address these two public health emergencies,” said Everytown president John Feinblatt in the news release.
The group indicated that $2.2 million would be split between the efforts to oppose Troy Nehls (R) and Beth Van Duyne (R) in Texas’s 22nd and 24th congressional districts, respectively, while $1.4 million would target various state legislative races in Arizona, Iowa, Minnesota, North Carolina, and Texas.
Everytown’s effort will also fund more than $700,000 worth of GOTV ads in Arizona, North Carolina, and Texas as well as mail ads against Republican candidates in Arizona, Minnesota, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Texas.
American’s better wake up and vote RED on November 3. Organizations like this are working to take away your 2nd Amendment rights. Also, defunding police is another agenda, all to disarm our people. That’s how they get control, so YOU BETTER GET OUT AND VOTE.
