"Jeff Crank is a life-long credit union member and he will be a strong and effective voice for credit unions as congressman for the 5th District," said CUAC Senior Vice President of Governmental Affairs Timothy Dore.

Crank, a business consultant and former congressional staff member, lost the GOP nomination for the seat in 2006 by 892 votes, and finished second in a six-candidate field to succeed retiring U.S. Rep.
