WASHINGTON – Congressional Leadership Fund (@CLFSuperPAC) President Mike Shields issued the following statement on tonight’s election results in Florida’s 26th Congressional District. CLF spent over $1.4 million in independent expenditures in the FL-26 race on TV advertising, online advertising and GOTV efforts.

“Congratulations to Carlos Curbelo for his election victory. Carlos Curbelo is the independent and pragmatic leader families across Florida’s 26th district need in Congress. In a short time, Carlos has built a strong reputation of working across party lines to get things done. Whether it’s protecting the environment, promoting economic growth, or fighting against costly healthcare, Carlos fights for center-right solutions that will benefit families and provide greater opportunity. We look forward to Carlos’ continued leadership in Congress on behalf of 26th district families.”

In 2016, Congressional Leadership Fund and its sister-organization American Action Network spent a combined $48 Million on independent expenditures in 32 U.S. House races.
