Bloomberg: Primary win a good sign for gun control
By NEDRA PICKLERAssociated Press
Bloomberg's PAC, Independence USA, poured more than $2 million into ads supporting Illinois state Rep. Robin Kelly, who won a special primary on Tuesday. Those funds have been credited with helping Kelly defeat former U.S. Rep. Debbie Halvorson, who opposes an assault weapons ban
Bloomberg says Kelly's win reflected the public speaking out against those who stand in the way of tougher gun restrictions.
Bloomberg spoke after meeting with Vice President Joe Biden and senators from both parties to discuss efforts to curb gun violence.
