CLF Statement on Michelle Steel’s Victory

Congressional Leadership Fund released the following statement on the election results in California’s 48th Congressional District.

“Michelle Steel came to the United States from South Korea searching for better opportunities in life, and now she further embodies the American Dream as one of the first Korean-American women elected to Congress,” said CLF President Dan Conston. “I know Steel will bring her track record of success working with members of both parties to Congress, and CLF was proud to deliver outside support for her campaign.”

During the final weeks of the election, Congressional Leadership Fund aired foreign language advertising in CA-48, including in Vietnamese, Korean and more. To view an example click here.
