WASHINGTON – The Congressional Leadership Fund (@CLFSuperPAC) today announced plans to spend $500,000 in Illinois’ 12th congressional district race against liberal Democrat Bill Enyart. The independent expenditures will include TV advertising October 28 – November 4.
“After claiming he’d be above party politics, Bill Enyart quickly became another partisan player for Nancy Pelosi in Congress,” said Emily Davis, spokeswoman for the Congressional Leadership Fund. “With a reckless record of voting against 12 budgets and even military chaplain service, Bill Enyart has failed to represent the values of Southern Illinois families.”
CLF and its sister organization, the American Action Network (AAN), have announced a total of over $19 Million in independent expenditures in 20 congressional districts across the country. 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. 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.
