American Action Network to Spend $1.1 Million Against Aimee Belgard (NJ-03)

WASHINGTON – The American Action Network today announced they would be spending $1.1 Million in New Jersey’s 3rd Congressional District race between liberal candidate Aimee Belgard and center-right candidate Tom MacArthur. The independent expenditures will include Philadelphia broadcast TV ads and digital advertising beginning October 28 for the final week of the general election.

“The last thing New Jerseyans need is a Nancy Pelosi puppet like Aimee Belgard to keep breaking her promises and raising their taxes,” said AAN President Brian O. Walsh, a native New Jerseyan and former political director for the 2006 U.S. Senate campaign of Tom Kean, Jr.

This independent expenditure campaign is part of a total $13 Million of announced spending from AAN and 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).
