Nearly two-dozen members of Michael Bloomberg's Mayors Against Illegal Guns lost reelection earlier this week, delivering another blow to the anti-gun group that has been losing members at a rapid pace for more than year. Here is the list of members who were defeated:

Daniel Juarez – Hawthorne, CA
Patrick J. Morris – San Bernardino, CA
Richard A. Moccia – Norwalk, CT
Gow Fields – Lakeland, FL
Earnestine D. Pittman – East Point, GA
Nancy Chaney – Moscow, ID
Joshua J. Cohen – Annapolis, MD
Thatcher W. Kezer, III – Amesbury, MA
Linda M. Balzotti – Brockton, MA
James H. Suttle – Omaha, NE
Eric A. Spear – Portsmouth, NH
Lorenzo T. Langford – Atlantic City, NJ
Robert L. Bowser – East Orange, NJ
Mary Foster – Peekskill, NY
Thomas S. Richards – Rochester, NY
Robbie Perkins – Greensboro, NC
Jackie Holcombe – Morrisville, NC
Ted Andrzejewski – Eastlake, OH
Margaret D. Stock – Butler, PA
Pete Lagiovane – Chambersburg, PA
Bonnie Heath – Pottstown, PA
Ralph Harrington – West Elizabeth, PA
Mike McGinn – Seattle, WA

The 23 mayors who lost re-election were opposed and confronted by the National Rifle Association and represented more than 10 percent of MAIG membership. In addition, 69 Mayors Against Illegal Guns members chose to retire and not seek re-election. Many of the mayors who retired represented cities in New York and Connecticut, both states that have implemented harsher gun control laws since last year.
