Super PAC

CONGRESSIONAL LEADERSHIP FUND

Founded by businessman Fred Malek, the fund is run by President Brian Walsh, a former political director of the National Republican Congressional Committee, and Chairman Norm Coleman, the former GOP senator from Minnesota. The men formed this group in October 2011 to defend the Republican House majority. The fund is loosely affiliated with the American Action Network, a conservative nonprofit advocacy group. | See this committee's FEC-reported expenditures at PACTrack »
