Money isn’t everything, but when it comes to politics, it sure does help. The Congressional Leadership Fund (CLF), the super PAC closely aligned with House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI), has raised more than $71 million so far this election cycle.

CLF’s Executive Director Corry Bliss spoke to Politico about what that dollar amount means for Republican House candidates and how the money will be used to protect GOP-held seats.

$71 million: The amount CLF has raised so far this election cycle.
