Congressional Leadership Fund to Spend $1.6 Million Against Carol Shea-Porter (NH-01)

WASHINGTON – The Congressional Leadership Fund (@CLFSuperPAC) today announced plans to spend $1.6 Million in New Hampshire’s 1st congressional district race against extreme liberal Carol Shea-Porter. The independent expenditures, including television advertising, will run in late October.

“Carol Shea-Porter’s extreme liberal record could hardly be more out of touch with a state that prides itself on independence,” said Emily Davis, spokeswoman for the Congressional Leadership Fund. “Come hell or high water, Carol Shea-Porter will champion Obamacare no matter how much the law hurts Granite Staters with its broken promises and high costs. Granite Staters deserve better than a rubber stamp for Nancy Pelosi’s San Francisco liberal agenda.”

CLF and its sister organization, the American Action Network (AAN) have announced a total of $12 Million in independent expenditures in twelve congressional districts across the country.

The Congressional Leadership Fund (CLF) is the super PAC dedicated exclusively to preserving and expanding the Republican Majority in the U.S. House of Representatives. From 2011-2012, CLF raised a combined $55 million with its sister-organization, the American Action Network (AAN), a 501c4 primarily focused on advocating for center-right policy solutions. Additionally, the Sunlight Foundation rated the $21 million in independent expenditures spent by AAN & CLF the #1 and #2 Highest “Returns on Investment” of conservative groups. The super PAC’s board is chaired by former Senator and American Action Network Chairman Norm Coleman (R-MN) and includes Fred Malek and former NRCC Chairman Tom Reynolds (R-NY). CLF is an independent-expenditure super PAC that operates independently of any federal candidate or officeholder.
