CLF spent over $3.7 million in independent expenditures in the NY-19 race on TV advertising, online advertising, mail and GOTV ground game efforts.
“Congratulations to John Faso on his hard-fought victory. John Faso is just the kind of independent, pragmatic leader Hudson Valley families need in Congress.
