But for a candidate in a pro-gun state like Georgia, she has supporters who cast her in a troubling light.
Big time gun-control advocate Mike Bloomberg is among those on the left doing what he can to move Nunn's campaign forward, noted Brandon Howell in a March column at Townhall.com:
Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg maxed out to Nunn’s campaign in the final fundraising quarter of 2013, this coming in the same year in which he called on donors to quit contributing to Democrats who oppose his pro-gun control agenda.Also in late 2013, the NRA's Institute for Legislative Action picked up on this:
Recently, Georgia U.S. Senate candidate Michelle Nunn attended a New York City fundraiser with Michelle Obama and picked up her endorsement. In her remarks Mrs. Obama said that electing Nunn is "critical" to enacting President Obama's anti-Second Amendment agenda.In her campaign, Nunn now seeks to play the political outsider, a middle-of-the-roader who runs ads proclaiming her fresh face wants to bring new ways of doing things to Washington.
Trouble is, there's a history from last year suggesting something quite different.
