WASHINGTON – Congressional Leadership Fund (@CLFSuperPAC) President Mike Shields issued the following statement on tonight’s election results in Wisconsin’s 8th Congressional District. CLF spent $800,000 in independent expenditure in WI-08 on TV advertising and digital advertising.
“Congratulations to Mike Gallagher on his election victory. With Mike, Wisconsin is sending to Congress a Marine Corps veteran who will fight for a stronger and safer America. Mike’s devotion to our country and accomplished record of service is exactly the kind of leadership that will keep Washington in check and put our country back on track. Mike’s first-hand experience both in the military and in business will make him an invaluable voice on issues of national and economic security. I look forward to Mike Gallagher’s leadership to help ensure our country is more secure and more prosperous.”
