Congressional Leadership Fund to Spend $1 Million Against John Foust (VA-10)

WASHINGTON – The Congressional Leadership Fund (@CLFSuperPAC) today announced plans to spend $1 Million in Virginia’s 10th congressional district race between tax-and-spend Democrat John Foust and center-right Republican leader Barbara Comstock. The independent expenditures will include TV ads in the Washington, DC media market and digital advertising in mid-October.

“John Foust claims he’s a budget cutter, but his record shows he’s actually a tax hike champion – on everything from real estate to restaurant meals,” said Emily Davis, spokeswoman for Congressional Leadership Fund. “Northern Virginia families deserve better than John Foust’s higher taxes, big spending and sexist comments about his opponent. Barbara Comstock is the experienced, pragmatic problem-solver Northern Virginia needs in Congress.”

This is part of a first round of announced spending totaling $8 Million in nine districts across the country along with CLF’s sister organization, the American Action Network (AAN). During the 2012 election cycle, independent expenditures of CLF and AAN were rated the #1 and #2 Highest “Return on Investment” of any conservative outside spenders.

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.
