Rep. Kendrick Meek (D-Fla.), who received $5,000 from both CUNA's and NAFCU's PACs in his fight for an open Senate seat, was projected to finish third by the Associated Press.
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 political action committees of CUNA and NAFCU won some and lost some in yesterday's primary elections.
Because of Florida Gov. Charlie Crist's decision to leave the GOP and become an independent, CUNA has provided financial support to more than one Senate candidate in the Sunshine State.
