    This report refers to Shannon Watts as one in a group of regular people who began advocating for stricter gun control measures in recent years. After the December 2012 shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., she created the One Million Moms for Gun Control Facebook page. It later became Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. We should have noted that Watts has a background in corporate communications. From 1998 to mid-2012, she was a corporate communications executive or consultant at such companies as Monsanto and FleishmanHillard. Before that, Watts had what she says was a...

    Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) is working with former New York mayor and vocal gun-control advocate Michael Bloombergs organization to attempt to come up with a measure to keep terrorists from acquiring guns. A spokeswoman from Bloombergs organization, Everytown for Gun Safety, said Wednesday that the group was working with Toomeys office on the terror gap, referring to a quirk in the laws that makes it legal for people on the governments terrorist watch lists to purchase firearms. Toomeys office would not comment Wednesday. Its unclear if the effort will result in the actual drafting of a bill or is a...

Trump has 37 percent support, and Johnson has 9 percent support, with 4 percent undecided. Just 1 percent of respondents said they wouldnt vote for any of the candidates. An overwhelming 55 percent of respondents whose first choice isnt Trump said they would never vote for the real estate mogul. Forty-three percent of respondents whose first choice isnt...

    Are you really shocked? Dont be. Everytown is actually the last of the major gun-control groups to endorse Hillary Clinton in this cycle; the Brady Campaign and Gabby Giffords Americans for Responsible Solutions endorsed Hillary way back in January, as The Hills Tim Devaney points out. What took them so long? Michael Bloombergs gun control group is endorsing Hillary Clinton for president. Everytown for Gun Safety said Friday it is backing Clinton, just days before her California primary challenge with Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.). Hillary Clinton is the only candidate who is willing to take on the gun lobby, said...

    The University of Michigan's spring commencement was certainly no "safe space" for Michael Bloomberg. The former mayor of New York City used part of his address to graduates over the weekend in Ann Arbor to blast the idea of "safe spaces" and other coddling of college students as a "terrible mistake" on the part of college administrations. "The fact that some university boards and administrations now bow to pressure and shield students from these ideas through 'safe spaces,' 'code words' and 'trigger warnings' is, in my view, a terrible mistake," Bloomberg said, drawing a smattering of boos and some applause....

    Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced today that he will not be seeking a third-party run for the presidency because he does not want to be responsible for helping elect Ted Cruz or Donald Trump. There's been lots of talk about Bloomberg prepping for a third-party run if the Democrats nominated Bernie Sanders and the Republicans nominated either Cruz or Trump. But with Hillary Clinton looking more and more inevitable, Bloomberg apparently feels he doesn't have to step in as the savior anymore. He writes, "The current presidential candidates are offering scapegoats instead of solutions, and they are promising...

Trump. In a forceful condemnation of his fellow New Yorker, Mr. Bloomberg said Mr. Trump has run "the most divisive and demagogic presidential campaign I can remember, preying on people's prejudices and fears." He said he was alarmed by Mr. Trump's threats to bar Muslim immigrants...

He blamed Marco Rubio for some of that mudslinging, saying the Florida senator’s personal attacks on Trump after last Thursday’s debate may have backfired. “I suspect it hurt Rubio,” Gingrich says. “Rubio’s not an attack dog. Chris Christie’s an attack dog. Christie knows how to do that, Rubio doesn’t. And Rubio ends up, I think, looking silly.”Gingrich also chided Republicans suggesting they won’t get behind Trump...

Luntz's reasoning came from a nationwide poll of 900 likely voters conducted by his firm, Luntz Global Partners. The survey found that 29% of Americans would support Bloomberg in a theoretical three-way race between the former mayor, GOP front-runner Donald Trump, and Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton. Trump would receive 37% of the vote, while Clinton would emerge with 33%. In a three-way race with Sen. Ted Cruz...

Democrats have done a fine job of completely dismissing the FBI inquiry, but the possibility that Clinton could face serious legal hurdles may be encouraging Bloomberg’s ambitions.

Bloomberg, the popular former mayor of New York City, has sent up trial balloons before.

In fact, Bloomberg is reportedly even studying up on past third-party runs by H. Ross Perot...

    Former GOP presidential candidate George Pataki is predicting that Democrat Hillary Clinton's "legal issues" will force an outside candidate to jump into the 2016 White House race as a white knight. "People talk about the problems in the Republican Party, but I think Democrats have a bigger problem," the former New York governor told host John Catsimatidis on "The Cats Roundtable" on New York's AM-970 on Sunday. "Hillary Clinton is cratering, the scandals just keep coming. She has grave legal issues that could totally prevent her from continuing her campaign, and the alternative is a self-avowed socialist who has never...

    Washington (CNN)Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is seriously considering a possible independent presidential run and is looking at making a decision sometime in March, two sources familiar with Bloomberg's thinking told CNN on Saturday. One source said aides to the three-term mayor are looking at ballot access issues, but the source refused to speak specifically about what Bloomberg, 73, asked to be done. The source added that Bloomberg sees the Republican and Democratic presidential races as becoming increasingly polarized, and neither fits Bloomberg's views. But Bloomberg, who has flirted with Oval Office aspirations in the past, is serious...

    Guard the Big Gulps and the guns, and store up on the table salt while you’re at it. “Galled” by the lasting power of Donald Trump with Republicans and the incompetence of Hillary Clinton in closing the sale with Democrats, former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg may enter the race as an independent. The New York Times reports today that Bloomberg will loosen up at least a billion dollars of his own money if he decides he can win in November: Galled by Donald J. Trump's dominance of the Republican field, and troubled by Hillary Clinton's stumbles and the...

    Galled by Donald J. Trump's dominance of the Republican field, and troubled by Hillary Clinton's stumbles and the rise of Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont on the Democratic side, Michael R. Bloomberg has instructed advisers to draw up plans for an independent campaign in this year's presidential race. Mr. Bloomberg, the billionaire former mayor of New York City, has in the past contemplated running for the White House on a third-party ticket, but always concluded he could not win. A confluence of unlikely events in the 2016 election, however, has given new impetus to his presidential aspirations. Mr. Bloomberg, 73,...

    The only way this horrible campaign can end for conservative anti-Trumpers, I think, is with a third-party candidacy that’s even more irritating than Trump’s is. It’d be like a twist at the end of an especially creepy Twilight Zone episode, where a guy sells his soul to the devil for another choice besides Trump and Hillary — and it turns out to be Mike Bloomberg. “Submitted for your approval: A man who’ll never drink more than 12 ounces of soda in one sitting again. A lesson in being careful what you wish for … in the Twilight Zone.”Since Bloomberg...
