A number of former credit union executives and directors have good reason to smile on Wednesday.
Overall, politicians with ties to the credit union industry had a good night during Tuesday’s election. Roughly a dozen people with a connection to credit unions won races for the U.S. House and other local contests.
Additionally, the Credit Union Legislative Action Council (CULAC), the federal political action committee of the Credit Union National Association, supported 375 candidates for House and Senate seats this year. CUNA and state credit union leagues invested a record $7 million, supporting candidates friendly to the industry, the trade group said in October.
Here is a look at results for races across the country that touched upon the credit union industry.
