WASHINGTON – Congressional Leadership Fund (@CLFSuperPAC) President Mike Shields issued the following statement in response to the election results in Texas’ 23rd Congressional District. CLF spent $2 million in independent expenditures in the TX-23 race on TV advertising, online advertising, mail and GOTV efforts.
“Will Hurd never gives up and his victory tonight is just further proof of his extraordinary leadership. Congressional Leadership Fund couldn’t be more proud to back him for Congress and we congratulate him on his hard-fought election win. Will’s success is proof that voters of all backgrounds value his authenticity and results-oriented leadership to keep Washington in check and work across the aisle for solutions to our nation’s challenges. Will is exactly the kind of experienced problem-solver Texans and our nation needs in Congress, and we look forward to his continued leadership.”
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.
