Conservatives Victorious on Election Day 2016
November 8th didn't turn out like the media, pollsters, the liberals, and all the other Democrat special interest elites wanted. No Hillary Clinton as President, no Chuck Schumer as Senate Majority Leader, and no Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House: those are all results for which we can be thankful.
Conservative Victory Fund helped in a number of important Senate races including the come from behind Senator Ron Johnson victory in Wisconsin, Marco Rubio in Florida, Patrick Toomey in Pennsylvania, and the upset in Indiana where Congressman Todd Young beat Democrat Evan Bayh. CVF also helped in victorious Senate races in Utah, South Carolina, Oklahoma, Kentucky, and Missouri -- to mention a few more.
CVF helped elect Senator Ron Johnson, Senator Patrick Toomey, and Senator Marco Rubio.
CVF helped elect or reelect conservatives in House races across the country including California, New York, Texas, Arizona, Indiana, Iowa, Colorado, North Carolina, Maryland, and West Virginia, and more.
Conservative Victory Fund helped in the Louisiana runoff December 10 --electing a conservative U.S. Senator and two additional conservative U.S. Representatives.
And 2018 Can Lead To More Conservative Senate Victories
The liberals are already starting to organize for 2018. Conservatives have some great opportunities to elect more conservatives to the Senate. The liberal Democrats will be defending 25 seats including a large number in states that President-elect Trump carried like Florida, Wisconsin, North Dakota, Indiana, Missouri, Montana, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Ohio.

CVF Conservative of the Day
Mike Lee (UT)
Mike Lee received his first lessons in conservatism at the dinner table from his father, Rex Lee, who was Solicitor General for President Reagan. Mike's father instilled in him a deep respect for the Constitution and the principles of the founding fathers.
This respect for the Constitution served him well as a legal clerk for future Supreme Court Justice Judge Samuel A. Alito, Jr. Senator Lee has a well-deserved reputation for his strong support of the U.S. Constitution. He also was the chief sponsor in the Senate of the "Cut, Cap and Balance" initiative that would have started us on the road to a balanced budget and drastically cut spending.
Senator Lee led the 2010 uprising against politics as usual. He defeated an incumbent U.S. Senator in the Utah Republican Convention, then won the primary, and then the general election.
Mike Lee has established himself as a leading constitutional conservative in the Senate. He has proved over his long legal career that he has the sound judgement and keen understanding of the Constitution that is so desperately needed on Capitol Hill. Conservative Victory Fund was honored to be able to help elect such a dedicated and principled conservative to the U.S. Senate.
