Congressional Leadership Fund Launches New Website
#ImWithCareless Marks Steve Santarsiero For Embracing “Extremely Careless” Hillary Clinton

WASHINGTON – With Hillary Clinton officially at the top of the Democratic ticket, Congressional Leadership Fund (@CLFSuper PAC) launched, kicking off a digital and social media effort to tie Steve Santarsiero, and other Democratic candidates, to their scandal-plagued presidential nominee.

Inspired by FBI Director James Comey’s blistering criticism of Clinton as “extremely careless” in her “handling of very sensitive, highly classified information,” provides the latest news, videos, and insight on what Santarsiero says about his unpopular presidential nominee. First featuring 12 Democratic candidates, the website will unveil additional Democrats in the coming weeks and serve as a key messaging hub for tying Democrats to Hillary.

“Putting politics before principle, Steve Santarsiero is ‘Ready for Hillary’ regardless of how untrustworthy and reckless she’s found by voters or even the FBI,” said Ruth Guerra, Deputy Communications Director for Congressional Leadership Fund. “Democrats proudly embracing Hillary Clinton will have to explain to voters why they continue to stand by her record of scandals and dishonesty.”

As the latest polling shows, Hillary Clinton is politically toxic: Seven in 10 Americans view Clinton as dishonest and untrustworthy. This is her worst rating on record, with her image also reaching new lows.

The First 12 Democratic Candidates with Careless Clinton:
• Ami Bera (CA-07)
• Morgan Carroll (CO-06)
• Annette Taddeo (FL-26)
• Joe Garcia (FL-26)
• Brad Ashford (NE-02)
• Jacky Rosen (NV-03)
• Ruben Kihuen (NV-04)
• Colleen Deacon (NY-24)
• Emily Cain (ME-02)
• Steve Santarsiero (PA-08)
• Pete Gallego (TX-23)
• LuAnn Bennett (VA-10)

Founded in 2011, Congressional Leadership Fund is the super PAC endorsed by House Republican Leadership and dedicated exclusively to preserving and expanding the Republican Majority in the U.S. House of Representatives. CLF, along with its sister organization American Action Network 501(c)(4), spent $20 million in independent expenditures on U.S. House races in 2014. CLF and AAN remain the single largest outside conservative spenders on the U.S. House. CLF is an independent-expenditure super PAC that operates independently of any federal candidate or officeholder.
