Congressional Leadership Fund President Dan Conston released the following statement on the launch of WinRed:

“WinRed is a game changer — the infrastructure unlocks vast potential for Republican campaigns to close the gap in small dollar fundraising,”said CLF President Dan Conston. “But while WinRed is a great opportunity, it’s not a guarantee. The only way it will work for Republican candidates is if Republican candidates work to build their online lists.”

“Congressional Leadership Fund evaluates campaigns and electability on a number of key factors. From here on out, CLF will be adding small dollar fundraising to our evaluation of GOP campaigns. Every Republican candidate should be investing in building online lists to help themselves.”
