Trades Have Mixed Results in Tuesday's Elections
The political action committees of CUNA and NAFCU won some and lost some in yesterday's primary elections.
Both PACs gave $5,000 to Rep. Kendrick Meek (D-Fla.) who beat back a challenge from billionaire businessman Jeff Greene by a 57% to 31% margin to win the nomination for an open Senate seat there. Meek will face Gov. Charlie Crist, a Republican turned Independent, to whom both PACs also each gave $5,000 when he was a Republican, and the GOP nominee, former Florida House Speaker Marco Rubio.
