PHOENIX – Eager to increase political fund raising for state races, the Arizona Credit Union League has revised its 15-year old “Capitol Club” program permitting higher levels of personal contributions above $1,000. In just a week, it has raised more than $5,000 in personal contributions from CU executives across the state. “Remember this is John McCain’s state and we have strict limits on campaign contributions,” said Daniel Herron, political action coordinator for the league.
