(POLITICO) — Michael Bloomberg’s pro-gun-control super PAC will drop $1.1 million on ads for Democrat Terry McAuliffe in the final two weeks of the Virginia governor’s race.
The billionaire New York City mayor’s money will be siphoned through Independence USA PAC into broadcast television commercials in the D.C. market, according to two sources tracking the air war.
An adviser to the outgoing mayor did not respond to an email seeking more detail on the ads, which will begin running Tuesday and continue through the eve of the Nov. 5 election.
