New York City's mayor is planning to host a fundraiser for U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin.
Michael Bloomberg praised Manchin for co-sponsoring a measure to expand background checks for purchases at gun shows.
The measure was ultimately defeated in the Senate after it failed to garner 60 votes to overcome a filibuster.
Bloomberg has become one of the most prominent supporters of gun control. His group Mayors Against Illegal Guns pushed senators to support expanding background checks for gun purchases.
