Congressional Leadership Fund to Spend $600,000 Against Gwen Graham (FL-02)
WASHINGTON – The Congressional Leadership Fund (@CLFSuperPAC) today announced plans to spend $600,000 in Florida’s 2nd congressional district race against liberal Democrat Gwen Graham. The independent expenditures will include Tallahassee and Panama City TV ads and digital advertising from October 21 until Election Day.
“Gwen Graham may talk about the North Florida way, but her record shows she only operates the Washington insider way,” said Dan Conston, Communications Director for the Congressional Leadership Fund.
CLF and its sister organization, the American Action Network (AAN), have announced a total of $14.85 Million in independent expenditures in 14 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.
