Advertising in 30 congressional districts, including fall television reservations in 20 key districts
First GOP group to make advertising reservations this election cycle

WASHINGTON – Congressional Leadership Fund (@CLFSuperPAC),the super PAC endorsed by House Republican leadership, today announced the first of several rounds of advertising reservations for fall 2018. CLF’s announcement, the first from a GOP outside group this cycle, includes $38 million in broadcast and cable television advertising and an unprecedented $10 million digital investment, totaling an initial investment of $48 million. Thanks to CLF’s record-breaking early fundraising, the super PAC is able to lock in larger TV reservations at lower rates ahead of the midterm elections. Last cycle, CLF announced its first reservation of $10 million in August 2016.  

“CLF’s historic and aggressive fundraising pace has allowed us to place larger advertising buys earlier than ever,” said CLF Executive Director Corry Bliss. “Today’s announcement demonstrates CLF’s continued commitment to doing things differently. By reserving advertising early, investing unprecedented resources in digital, and running the country’s only House-focused national field program, CLF is prepared to lead the way in defending the House Republican majority.”
