WASHINGTON – Congressional Leadership Fund President Mike Shields released the following statement regarding Speaker Paul Ryan’s primary victory in Wisconsin’s 1st Congressional District. In July, CLF released a survey conducted by Harper Polling that showed Paul Ryan with a crushing lead in the primary.
“Congratulations to Speaker Paul Ryan on his landslide primary victory,” said Mike Shields, CLF President. “Not that there was ever a doubt. After some absurd media stories, endorsements and twitter chatter, the people who actually know Paul Ryan the best overwhelmingly endorsed his conservative leadership. Everyone who believes in conservative solutions to poverty, national security, the economy, protecting the Constitution, reforming health care and enacting tax reform owes the conservative voters in Wisconsin’s First Congressional District a huge thank you for giving us Paul Ryan again.”
Congressional Leadership Fund is the House GOP super PAC exclusively dedicated to preserving and growing the House Republican Majority. CLF, along with its sister 501(c)(4) American Action Network, spent nearly $20 million in independent expenditures on U.S. House races in 2014.
