CLF to Spend $600,000 Against Emily Cain

Independent Expenditures Includes TV and Digital Advertising

WASHINGTON – The Congressional Leadership Fund (@CLFSuperPAC), the super PAC endorsed by House Republican leadership, today announced plans to spend $600,000 in Maine’s 2nd congressional district race against extreme liberal Emily Cain. The independent expenditure will include two weeks of TV advertising across Portland, Bangor and Presque Island media markets and digital advertising starting October 25.

“Emily Cain will have no place to hide from her support of the failed Obama-Clinton agenda that has made our country less safe and less prosperous,” said Ruth Guerra, spokeswoman for Congressional Leadership Fund. “Voters need to look no further than Cain’s support of tax hikes, more intrusive government, and the dangerous Iran deal to know she’s too extreme for Maine’s 2nd district.”

CLF has already had Emily Cain’s extreme partisanship in its sights, tying Cain to Hillary Clinton via CLF’s campaign launched this summer. CLF’s total announced general election spending to date is over $21 million across 16 congressional races. CLF and its sister organization, American Action Network, remain the single largest outside conservative spenders on the U.S. House.

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. CLF, along with its sister organization, 501(c)(4) American Action Network, spent $20 million in independent expenditures on U.S. House races in 2014. CLF is an independent-expenditure super PAC that operates independently of any federal candidate or officeholder.
