Arizona is one of the last bastions of freedom in the country. So, of course, Arizona (where I escaped to) is a major target. Hopefully, Arizona Republicans can muster themselves into actually doing something with their strength and numbers – while we still have it. The turning of blue from red can be laid at the feet of the weakness of the Republican Party everywhere.
Michael Bloomberg’s affiliated gun control group announced Tuesday it plans to spend at least $5 million in Arizona in an effort to aid Democratic wins from the presidency down to the state Legislature.
The move is part of a $60 million nationwide effort by the political arm of Everytown for Gun Safety, an organization co-founded by the former New York City mayor, and underscores Arizona’s more competitive political climate.
Dubbed “Gun Sense Majority: Arizona,” Everytown’s plan is to create an organization to send mailers, run digital and TV ads, make phone calls and recruit new voters.
