American Action Network to Spend $600,000 Against Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18)
WASHINGTON – The American Action Network (@AAN) today announced plans to spend $600,000 in New York’s 18th congressional district race against liberal Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney. The independent expenditures will include heavy mail and digital advertising as well as some broadcast TV advertising in late October.
“Sean Patrick Maloney thinks his constituents should have to live by one set of rules and he should get to live by another,” said Emily Davis, spokeswoman for the American Action Network. “From voting to have first class air travel for Members of Congress to violating a ban by the very entity he oversees in Congress, Sean Patrick Maloney has proven he doesn’t deserve the trust of Hudson Valley families.”
AAN and its sister organization, the Congressional Leadership Fund Super PAC, have announced a total of over $19 Million in independent expenditures in 20 congressional districts across the country. 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.
