Michael Bloomberg just made a jaw-dropping move that has Chuck Schumer giddy
Billionaire former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has dumped millions into enacting gun control.
Now he is seeing an opening.
And he just made a move that will make Chuck Schumer giddy with excitement.
After his term as Mayor ended, Bloomberg devoted his fortune to anti-gun activism.
He has poured countless millions into his gun control group, Everytown for Gun Safety.
But now, Bloomberg just dropped another $20 Million on the 2018 election to hand the Senate over to Chuck Schumer.
Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is reaching deep into his billionaire pockets to support Senate Democrats in the midterm elections.
As the Washington Post first reported, Bloomberg is good for $20 million that will go to the Senate Majority PAC, empowered to elect Democrats to the Senate.
“Mayor Bloomberg is a critical ally in our quest to win Senate races in every corner of the country,” Senate Majority PAC president J.B. Poersch told Politico. “Mayor Bloomberg’s contribution is another indicator that Democrats have a real opportunity to take back the Senate.”
Bloomberg has already shoveled $80 million in contributions over to help Democrats win the House of Representatives in November. This $100 million total in donations puts him on the list of top election contributors.
It’s no secret that Michael Bloomberg despises Donald Trump.
He’s even willing to spend $100 Million of his own money to take the majority away from the President.
But that’s not the only reason he is emptying his pockets.
There has been speculation for years that Bloomberg is setting himself up for a presidential run.
He sees the 2018 Midterms as an opportunity to buy some support from Democrats.
Polls have been tightening and this massive donation could tip the scales in Chuck Schumer’s favor.
