CLF Statement on Austin Theriault Victory in ME-02 Primary Election

Congressional Leadership Fund (CLF), the super PAC endorsed by House Republican Leadership, released the following statement on the primary election results in Maine’s 2nd Congressional District.

“Congratulations to Austin Theriault on his well-deserved victory,” said CLF President Dan Conston. “Austin’s deep roots in Maine and his time in the state legislature put him at the center of issues Mainers are most concerned about. His career as a NASCAR driver makes him a candidate that knows what it takes to win this fall. Jared Golden has failed to serve as the check and balance on Joe Biden and his toxic, far-left agenda that is out of step with the people and values of Maine. Austin gives Mainers someone to send to Washington who will bring real accountability.”

As part of its initial ad reservations for the fall, CLF is investing $3.2 million in Maine’s 2nd Congressional District. Additionally, Austin Theriault was endorsed by CLF’s Trailblazers Fund, which endorses and provides hard-dollar financial support to standout Republican candidates and Members of Congress with the demonstrated campaign strength to win.
