WASHINGTON – Congressional Leadership Fund (@CLFSuperPAC) President Mike Shields issued the following statement in response to the election results in Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District. CLF spent over $1.6 million in independent expenditures in the CO-03 election on TV advertising, online advertising, and GOTV efforts.
“Congratulations to Scott Tipton on his well-deserved victory. Scott’s re-election is proof that Western Slope residents value strong, pragmatic leadership that gets results. Congressional Leadership Fund is proud to have played a role in defining the contrasts between the candidates in this race. From land issues and economic development to security at home and abroad, Scott Tipton stands for the center-right solutions Coloradans and all Americans need. We look forward to Scott’s continued results-oriented leadership in the U.S. House.”
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.
Founded in 2011, Congressional Leadership Fund is the super PAC endorsed by House Republican Leadership and dedicated exclusively to preserving and expanding the Republican Majority in the U.S. House of Representatives.
