WASHINGTON – Congressional Leadership Fund (@CLFSuperPAC) President Mike Shields issued the following statement on tonight’s election results in Virginia’s 5th Congressional District. CLF spent nearly $950,000 in independent expenditure in VA-05 on TV advertising, digital advertising and GOTV efforts.
“Congratulations to Tom Garrett on his decisive victory tonight. Whether it’s Obamacare’s skyrocketing costs or a struggling economy, Tom can be counted on to fight for center-right solutions that will help Virginians succeed. We look forward to Tom’s leadership and experience in Congress to keep Washington in check and help get our country back on track.”
In 2016, Congressional Leadership Fund and its sister-organization American Action Network spent a combined $48 Million on independent expenditures in 32 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.
