The campaign for Initiative 594, the measure to close the “gun show loophole,” is getting a second $1 million infusion of cash from Everytown for Gun Safety, a group financed earlier this year by ex-New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

I-594 is rapidly becoming the billionaires’ campaign of 2014.  It has received $1 million from Bill and Melinda Gates.  A $250,000 contribution this week from LA Clippers owner Steve Ballmer and wife Connie brought their stake to $1 million. Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen has given $500,000.

Before the latest donation from Everytown, the I-594 campaign had reported $7.935 million in contributions with expenditures of $2.798 million — leaving the campaign with a massive war chest for TV commercials during the closing month of the election

So they are pumping at least $10 million dollars to the UBC in Washington State. I tried to get poll numbers, but the only ones I could get were from April when they were ahead 2 to 1. Are they losing ground so bad that the campaign needs this much monetary blood?

  1. I think Bloomberg realizes he cannot have another “Colorado recall” on his belt, and if he fails in Wash., it would be a huge setback. What else could they do at that point? Boycott Petsmart?

    They may still be ahead, dead-heat or even slightly behind. He MUST win this at all costs. Literally.

  2. I’m hoping that 594 fails, I dont care by how much because if it fails then its a win for my fellow free Washintonians, as we are severly outnumbered by Seattle, Tacoma, Bellevue and Olympia. However if it passes… I will be moving to Idaho…
