Hey Mississippi. You know Michael Bloomberg right? Hes the guy who wants to take your guns away. Hes the guy who created a non-profit group to agitate against the second amendment. Hes the guy spreading lies about the number of school shootings in the country.
Michael Bloomberg is also the guy who just gave a pro-Thad Cochran Super PAC $250,000.00. Gun grabbing Michael Bloomberg is trying to buy Thad Cochrans re-election.
Who do you think Thad Cochran will stand with the next six years if he gets re-elected. You people or the man who bought his re-election?
Thats 250,000 reasons to vote for Chris McDaniel.

it is sickening that any Republican (even a RINO) would encourage any lifelong politician... let the two candidates run and let the chips fall where they may... that doesn’t mean you have to support the challenger... but if the challenger wins, be hopeful he wins the general election...
The good folks of Mississippi may not appreciate their Senator Thad Cochran being in the pockets of Michael Bloomberg...
If I were running for office I would take every penny Bloomberg would give me. All of it. Then just go about my radical pro-2A ways anyway.
How come all the Enviros are not bitching about all the trees being killed to do all the campaigning on paper?
Otherwise, Bloomberg is just increasing the economy in Cochran’s area.
Take it with a grain of sand. Cochran has the endorsement of the NRA and the suggestion that Bloomberg’s money is meant for the Cochran campaign is, on its face, laughable. I could be convinced if a real tie could be proved, not inferred.
After his admission to doing, ahem, “strange things” with farm animals in his youth, the only place Cochran is going is to the unemployment line.
Heh....I don’t think it works that way...once you’ve accepted their $$, they own you...or else. Capish?
“During the period the super PAC spent $999,259 on independent expenditures against Christopher McDaniel, R-Miss., and $71,467 on independent expenditures supporting Sen. Thad Cochran, R-Miss.”

“Take it with a grain of sand. Cochran has the endorsement of the NRA and the suggestion that Bloombergs money is meant for the Cochran campaign is, on its face, laughable. I could be convinced if a real tie could be proved, not inferred.”
Representatives of The League of Defenders of Endangered RINOs have shown up to attempt to defend Cochran.
MS has tHAD enough ping
I find myself a bit distressed that Palazzo is backing him though.
If you are on the coast then you have to vote for Thad cause Brett said so. :>)
Bloomberg is also big on AMNESTY as are Cochran supporters The US Chamber of Commerce and Haley Barbour and the Barbour Rogers lobbying firm. On the other hand Senator Chris McDaniel is against AMNESTY and FOR enforcing our existing immigration laws and for PROTECTING our BORDER which is part of our existing immigration law. AND Cochran has voted anti-gun before, the 1991 “assault weapon” ban. It may not even be that Bloomberg wants Thad but that Senator McDaniel would certainly be someone he doesn’t want.
I posted the following on another thread about the NRA’s Cochran endorsement. Harry Reed and Thad Cochran, two of the NRA’s favorites.
Cochran only has an NRA A+ rating because the NRA has apparently forgiven Cochrans 1991 vote against assault weapons vote. Senator McDaniels A+ is untarnished. Is the NRA taking Barbours and the US Chambers money to help elect PRO AMNESTY politicians? Bloomberg also gives to PRO AMNESTY @#&holes.
At least you are a Mississippi voter.
I guess Brett believes in hanging around beyond one's useful years....
He was a great quarterback in his day, then decided to "make a comeback". One might think he could do the math and make the connection...
Wrong. Bloomberg donated $250,000 to a group called Mississippi “Conservatives”, which, as of May 30, had spent $1.7 million against McDaniel.
It’s hardly the first time the NRA has been in bed with Bloomberg, either actively, or passive-aggressively and coyly.
Yep, the NRA is passive-aggressively supporting amnesty, which is why they also spent a lot of money for Cantor, trying to defeat Brat. In part because their board is influenced by Grover Norquisling.
