American Action Network Targets Congressman Joe Garcia (FL-26) with $1 Million Campaign

WASHINGTON – The American Action Network (@AAN) today announced they will be spending $1 Million in Florida’s 26th congressional district race between scandal-plagued Congressman Joe Garcia and center-right candidate Carlos Curbelo. The independent expenditures will include multiple weeks of TV and digital advertising in mid-October. 

“South Florida families deserve better than another scandal-plagued politician like Joe Garcia who won’t take responsibility for the criminal actions of his own chief of staff,” said Emily Davis, spokeswoman for American Action Network. “It’s time Joe Garcia answers for the crimes under his watch and his record of boosting Obamacare at the expense of South Florida families.” 

This is part of a first round of announced spending totaling $8 Million in nine districts across the country along with AAN’s sister organization, the Congressional Leadership Fund Super PAC. During the 2012 election cycle, independent expenditures of AAN and CLF were rated the #1 and #2 Highest “Return on Investment” of any conservative outside spenders. 

The American Action Network is a 501(c)(4) 'action tank' that creates, encourages and promotes center-right policies based on the principles of freedom, limited government, American exceptionalism, and strong national security. The American Action Network's primary goal is to put our center-right ideas into action by engaging the hearts and minds of the American people and spurring them into action to advance our center-right policy agenda. The Network is chaired by former Senator Norm Coleman (MN) and its board includes Fred Malek, former Congressman Tom Reynolds (NY), and former Congressman Vin Weber (MN).
