Ruth Guerra to Lead Regional Communications for AAN & CLF

Top Communications Operative Hired as Deputy Communications Director

WASHINGTON – The 501(c)(4) American Action Network (AAN) and their sister super PAC, the Congressional Leadership Fund (CLF), today announced that top Republican spokesperson Ruth Guerra will serve as Deputy Communications Director of both organizations.

An experienced operative of both policy and political communications, Guerra will manage regional press for policy advocacy and key congressional races nationwide. Guerra will work alongside AAN & CLF President Mike Shields and Communications Director Emily Davis.

“We’re thrilled to have such a talented and experienced operative joining our team,” said Mike Shields, President of AAN and CLF. “Ruth has both national and congressional experience. She will be expanding her role as a conservative voice into congressional districts across America, on both policy and political issues.”

Guerra most recently served as Director of Hispanic Media for the Republican National Committee. Her previous experience includes working as Communications Director for Congressman Sam Johnson (R-TX), National Press Secretary for The LIBRE Initiative, and Press Secretary for Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL).

In 2015, AAN ran over $9 Million in advertising to advance center-right policy solutions in Congress. Last cycle, AAN and CLF, which is the super PAC dedicated exclusively to preserving and expanding the House Republican Majority, spent a combined $20 million in independent expenditures. The two groups raised a combined $104 million from 2011-2014.
