Louisiana: Kennedy: Mayor Hates Guns And Loves Gays
When they learned that deep-pocketed New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg (I) would be hosting a July 30 fundraiser for Sen. Mary Landrieu (D) on July 30, aides to Landrieus Republican challenger, state Treasurer John Kennedy, didnt panic.
Instead, they sought to remind Bayou State voters just what Bloomberg stands for. So they issued a news release with the headline, Last Landrieu Endorsement: Gun-Grabbing Liberal Mike Bloomberg.
The Kennedy campaign noted that Bloombergs push for gun control has made him the NRAs No. 1 enemy. And for good measure, the Republican camp pointed out that Bloomberg is a supporter of gay marriage, digging up a quote in which the mayor said, I think anybody should be allowed to marry anybody.
Kennedy also received good news Tuesday when his lone Republican primary opponent, Jacques Boudreaux, a landscape contractor, dropped out of the race.
