CLF & AAN Announce Additional $3.9 million in House Race Spending
Latest Round Brings CLF + AAN 2016 Investment to over $40 million in 32 Districts, More to Come
Washington, DC — The Congressional Leadership Fund (@CLFSuperPAC), the super PAC endorsed by House Republican leadership, and its sister organization, the American Action Network (@AAN), today announced plans to spend an additional $3.9 million in five congressional districts. This latest round of House race spending brings CLF and AAN’s total announced general election announced spending to date to over $40 million in 32 districts nationwide. Additional spending and districts will be announced in the coming days.
“Our tremendous fundraising has put us in position to play offense to pick up seats, join the fight in top tier races, and help build a firewall in the House,” said Mike Shields, President of CLF and AAN. “We have not only been able to fund our top tier races but go beyond that to put new resources into even more races across the board. And we still have more to come.”
CLF and AAN’s combined total 2016 general election spending is now double the group’s total independent expenditures of 2014 ($20 million). CLF and AAN remain the single largest outside conservative spenders on the U.S. House.
