Top strategist Charlie Spies joins House GOP super PAC

A top Republican strategist who headed up a super PAC devoted to Mitt Romney during the 2012 presidential election has signed on with a super PAC devoted to retaining the GOP's House majority in 2014, Post Politics has learned.

Charlie Spies, who founded and served as treasurer to the pro-Romney Restore Our Future super PAC, will serve as a senior adviser to the Congressional Leadership Fund, a super PAC affiliated with the American Action Network nonprofit issue advocacy group.

"House Republicans held our House majority in 2012 by listening to the American people and focusing on solutions to let our economy grow," House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said in a statement set to be released by CLF on Thursday. "The Congressional Leadership Fund plays a critical role in helping deliver our message on jobs, debt and freedom directly to voters, and as President Obama and his allies work to destroy our majority in 2014, I know House Republicans can count on CLF to take the fight to Democrats in race after race."

Restore our Future raised more than $150 million for the 2012 presidential race, and CLF was a top spender on House races, combining with AAN for $21 million in independent expenditures.

The CLF super PAC's board is led by former senator Norm Coleman (R-Minn.) and includes GOP strategist Fred Malek and former NRCC chairman Tom Reynolds (R-N.Y.).
