CUNA and NAFCU PACs Rev Up for the 2010 Election Season
As the fall campaign season kicks into high gear, CUNA's political action committee has $1 million in its coffers for upcoming political activities.
The Credit Union Legislative Action Council of CUNA raised $123,950 during July, according to the most recent report filed with the Federal Election Commission, and contributed $203,449 to federal candidates and committees. Over the 2009-2010 election cycle, it has raised $2.1 million and contributed $2.2 million.
Both PACs gave Crist and Democratic candidate Rep. Kendrick Meek of Florida $5,000 each. Former Florida House Speaker Marco Rubio is the GOP nominee.
Both PACs gave Crist and Meek money for their primary campaigns and will reevaluate for the fall. Both have supported CU issues.
