Credit union-supported candidates saw success in Tuesday’s elections in Colorado, New York, Utah, and South Carolina. America’s Credit Unions PAC and state Leagues supported 34 candidates, with one loss and Utah’s 2ndCongressional District Republican primary yet to be called.

In Colorado, Republican Jeff Heard won his primary with 41.3% of the vote (compared to opponents’ 28.4% and 9.8%) in the state’s 3rd Congressional District. That seat is open in November due to its current Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., running in another district.

Republican Jeff Crank also won his primary in the open Colorado 5th Congressional district, as current Rep. Doug Lamborn, R-Colo., did not see re-election.

In South Carolina’s 3rd Congressional District, Sheri Biggs (R) won her primary run-off re-election and will head to November’s election in a heavily Republican district.
