WASHINGTON – Congressional Leadership Fund (@CLFSuperPAC) President Mike Shields issued the following statement in response to the election results in Pennsylvania’s 8th Congressional District. CLF spent nearly $2,700,000 in independent expenditures in the PA-08 race on TV advertising, online advertising and GOTV efforts.
“Congratulations to Brian Fitzpatrick on his well-deserved victory. Brian is just the kind of independent and experienced leader Pennsylvanians need in Congress. Congressional Leadership Fund is proud to have supported Brian Fitzpatrick and played a role in highlighting the clear contrasts between candidates in this race. Pennsylvanians can look forward to Brian’s pragmatic, results-oriented leadership in Congress to keep Washington in check and stand for solutions to our nation’s security and economic challenges.”
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.
