The Congressional Leadership Fund announced on Wednesday that it raised over $50 million in the second quarter of 2018, breaking its previous record.

The super PAC brought in $51 million in fundraising and now has $71 million in cash on hand last quarter.

“Thanks to the leadership of Speaker Paul Ryan and Leader Kevin McCarthy in Congress, CLF continues to break fundraising records, raising more this quarter than CLF raised during the entire 2016 cycle. Our donors are united in making sure Nancy Pelosi does not become Speaker of the House,” CLF Executive Director Cory Bliss said in a statement.

The conservative PAC surpassed what it brought in for the entire 2016 election cycle.

“CLF’s early and aggressive fundraising has already proven to change the political landscape this midterm election cycle – we’ve reserved more than $60 million in fall advertising, opened field offices across the country, and knocked on over 15 million doors to date. CLF is committed to playing a major role protecting the Republican majority this fall,” Mr. Bliss said.
