It seems like only weeks ago that Senate candidate Phil Bredesen (D) was boasting of his support for gun rights yet he is now in New York City attending a fundraiser with gun control proponent Michael Bloomberg.

Now, New York Times correspondent Jonathan Martin reports Bredesen is in New York for a “glitzy fundraiser” with gun control extraordinaire Michael Bloomberg.

The Tennessee GOP posted video of Bredesen entering the Bloomberg fundraiser:
