WASHINGTON – Congressional Leadership Fund (@CLFSuperPAC) President Mike Shields issued the following statement in response to tonight’s election results in New York’s 24th Congressional District. CLF spent $800,000 in independent expenditure in NY-24 on TV advertising, online advertising and GOTV ground game efforts.

“Congratulations to John Katko on his decisive victory tonight. John Katko was one of the most successful members in his freshman class, and it’s clear that New Yorkers value his results-oriented leadership. John is known as an independent voice who fights for policies that keep our country safe and help create more opportunities for families to succeed. I’m thrilled to see John Katko’s strong support from 24th district voters as they send him back to Congress to continue working on their behalf.”

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.

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.
