|WASHINGTON – The Congressional Leadership Fund (@CLFSuperPAC) today announced plans to spend $500,000 in Minnesota’s 7th congressional district race against career Democrat politician Collin Peterson. The independent expenditures will include Minneapolis broadcast TV advertising beginning October 28 – November 4.“Minnesotans can look no further than Collin Peterson to find the problem with Washington,” said Emily Davis, spokeswoman for the Congressional Leadership Fund. “He thinks he deserves taxpayer funded car leases and private plane flights. When he’s so out of touch that he thinks Minnesotans should keep Obamacare and he should keep his congressional perks, it’s time for Collin Peterson to go.”
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.
