The Congressional Progressive Caucus PAC invested nearly $200,000 in independent expenditures to back Lee

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, the Congressional Progressive Caucus PAC (CPC PAC) congratulated Summer Lee on her victory in the PA-12 primary.

“Summer Lee’s victory is historic for the progressive movement. It is anchored by the strength of Summer’s efforts to build power for her community from the ground up,” said Congressional Progressive Caucus PAC Co-Chairs Pramila Jayapal, Mark Pocan, and Jamie Raskin. “The voters ignored the onslaught of outside spending against her and instead recognized Summer’s record as a champion for working families, the labor movement, Medicare for All, and environmental justice, and chose her as their Democratic nominee. She has a commitment to relentlessly taking on corporate special interests and fighting every day for justice. Summer Lee will bring exactly the kind of bold leadership we need right now in Congress, and we’ll continue to fight to elect candidates who will do just that.”

The Congressional Progressive Caucus PAC spent $196,000 through its independent expenditure program backing Lee, its first IE program of the year.
