Bloomberg doubles down in effort to oust Rep. Dan Webster



Remember that $1.1 million that NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg's PAC dumped on Rep. Dan Webster?

Add another $1.3 million, records show. Bloomberg, who only recently formed Independence USA PAC, shocked the Webster with his first expenditure and now this.

“Clearly Michael Bloomberg is looking to buy himself a Congressional seat in order to push his radical anti-gun agenda and Val Demings is his chosen proxy," said Kirsten Borman, Webster campaign consultant. "Instead of focusing on the thousands of New Yorkers who are homeless, without power or stranded in the cold following Hurricane Sandy, Mayor Bloomberg is focusing his energy and personal wealth on electing Val Demings to Congress."
