GOP Super PAC Spends $1.5M on Ads in PA Special Election

(CLF Super PAC)

By    |   Friday, 26 January 2018 11:14 AM

A major House Republican super PAC has launched a $1.5 million ad campaign against the Democratic candidate ahead of Pennsylvania's special election in March, The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

The Congressional Leadership Fund, a group tied to House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., has rolled out an ad linking candidate Conor Lamb to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., calling him one of her "sheep" in Washington.

"His name is Conor Lamb. But in Washington, he'd be one of Nancy Pelosi's sheep," a narrator says in the ad. "Lamb would join the liberal flock and follow Pelosi's lead, voting the straight liberal party line for Pelosi's extreme agenda: higher taxes, wasteful spending, job-crushing regulations, a weaker military."

Lamb is running against Republican state Rep. Rick Saccone in a district President Donald Trump won by nearly 20 points in 2016, yet GOP groups have made several major pushes to win the seat formerly held by Rep. Tim Murphy, a Republican, who resigned last year.

Lamb has repeatedly worked to distance himself from Pelosi, saying earlier this month that she should step down as the leader of House Democrats, and that he would have voted in favor of a GOP bill to avert last week's government shutdown.
