CLF Raises Over $37.5 Million, 7x First Quarter of 2020, and $93.5 Million Cash On Hand, 3x Previous Record
WASHINGTON — Congressional Leadership Fund, the super PAC endorsed by Leader Kevin McCarthy and House Republican Leadership, announced its record-breaking fundraising haul for the first quarter of 2022. CLF alone raised over $37.5 million and closed the books with more than $93.5 million cash on hand. CLF and AAN together have raised $145 million so far.
“CLF continues to obliterate every record, equipping us with the firepower to expand the map into Democrat territory,” said CLF President Dan Conston. “With a growing warchest and palpable voter enthusiasm, we are well-positioned to hold Democrats accountable for their disastrous agenda and elect a new Republican Majority in November.”
CLF’s staggering haul comes as the DCCC’s Sean Patrick Maloney told Punchbowl that CLF’s record-breaking fundraising was their biggest risk in the coming elections, and as CLF reports more than double House Majority PAC’s most recently disclosed cash on hand.
- CLF raised 7 times more in the first quarter of 2022 than the first quarter of 2020, pulling in more than $37.5 million. (CLF raised $5.4 million in Q1 of 2020 and its previous record for Q1 was in 2018 when it raised $13.3 million).
- CLF reports over $93.5 million cash on hand, 3x the record set for the same quarter in 2020 when CLF had $30.4 million on hand.
- CLF’s cash on hand is more than double the latest available cash on hand for House Majority PAC, which reported $45.8 million on hand at the end of February.
- AAN & CLF raised a combined $145 million, continuing to grow the all-time record of $110 million set at the close of books for 2021.
