WASHINGTON – Congressional Leadership Fund (@CLFSuperPAC) President Mike Shields issued the following statement in response to tonight’s election results in Virginia’s 10th Congressional District. CLF spent over $3,800,000 in independent expenditures in the VA-10 race on TV advertising, online advertising, mail and GOTV efforts.

“Congratulations to Barbara Comstock on her election victory. Barbara is the strong, practical voice Northern Virginians need in Congress, and Congressional Leadership Fund is proud to support her. Whether its transportation needs, skyrocketing health care costs or economic development, Barbara understands the center-right solutions needed for these challenges. We’re thrilled that Northern Virginia and our country will continue to benefit from Barbara’s experience and leadership.”

In 2016, Congressional Leadership Fund and its sister-organization American Action Network spent a combined nearly $48 Million on independent expenditures in U.S. House races.

Founded in 2011, Congressional Leadership Fund is the super PAC endorsed by House Republican Leadership and dedicated exclusively to preserving and expanding the Republican Majority in the U.S. House of Representatives. CLF is an independent-expenditure super PAC that operates independently of any federal candidate or officeholder.
