Mayor Bloomberg’s Statement on Robin Kelly’s Victory in IL-2

New York City, NY – The following is Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s statement on the special election in Illinois’ 2nd Congressional District:

“This is an important victory for common sense leadership on gun violence, a problem that plagues the whole nation. And it’s the latest sign that voters across the country are demanding change from their representatives in Washington — not business as usual. As Congress considers the President’s gun package, voters in Illinois have sent a clear message: we need common sense gun legislation now. Now it’s up to Washington to act.”

Bloomberg’s SuperPac poured $2.2 million into ads attacking Kelly’s biggest opponent — Debbie Halvorson. Halvorson refused to move off her position opposing a ban on assault weapons.
