CUNA’s political action committee on Tuesday announced its final independent expenditure of this election cycle—television advertising on behalf of Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.).

The Mississippi election is unique; it is a special election for the seat that had been held by Republican Sen. Thad Cochran, who resigned for health reasons. Hyde-Smith was appointed to replace Cochran and she is now running for a term that will expire in 2021.

The advertisement says that Hyde-Smith is the state’s first woman senator and highlights her position on defense spending and de-regulation. The ad is financed through an independent expenditure by CULAC, CUNA’s political action committee. Federal law prohibits any coordination with a candidate’s campaign if the contribution is an independent expenditure.
