WASHINGTON – The Congressional Leadership Fund (@CLFSuperPAC) today announced plans to spend $1 Million in Illinois’ 10th congressional district race against Brad Schneider. The independent expenditures will include broadcast TV ads and digital advertising beginning October 14.
“Brad Schneider has proven to be just another secretive politician who has failed Chicagoland families with his partisan, ineffective record in Congress,” said Emily Davis, spokeswoman for the Congressional Leadership Fund. “Too many Illinois voters are wondering if they can trust Brad Schneider when he’s still hiding returns and masquerading as a small businessman who reported no employees or business income. Bob Dold is the proven leader who delivers a bipartisan record for more jobs in Illinois and more accountability in Washington.”
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.
