WASHINGTON – Today, the Congressional Leadership Fund (@CLFSuperPac), the super PAC endorsed by House Republican leadership, announced plans to spend $500,000 in New York’s 21st Congressional District race between Congresswoman Elise Stefanik and Democrat Mike Derrick. The independent expenditure will include TV advertising in the Albany and Watertown media markets.
“In just two years, Elise Stefanik has delivered for her district and stood as a conservative, results-oriented leader in Congress,” said Ruth Guerra, spokeswoman for CLF. “Mike Derrick, on the other hand, vows to be another rubberstamp to the failed Obama-Clinton agenda that has left hardworking families behind. The choice is clear: voters can’t afford Mike Derrick.”
CLF’s total announced general election spending to date is over $33 million in 29 districts nationwide. CLF and its sister organization, American Action Network, remain the single largest outside conservative spenders on the U.S. House.
