Bloomberg PAC Makes Biggest Buy Yet - in Florida

Wednesday, 31 Oct 2012 07:11 PM

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's political committee is making its biggest expenditure to date in this year's congressional campaigns, spending $1.1 million for TV ads opposing the re-election of a freshman Florida Republican from the Orlando area.

The ad attacks Rep. Daniel Webster for being "a professional politician" and supports his Democratic challenger, Val Demings, Orlando's former police chief. He credits her for getting "guns off our streets" — a top issue for Bloomberg.

A spokesman for Bloomberg's Independence USA PAC, Josh Isay, says the political action committee anticipates spending $10 million to $15 million of the wealthy mayor's money in this year's elections.

Federal reports that the committee has filed indicate it had previously spent around $1.4 million, divided between Democrats and Republicans. Bloomberg is an independent.
