CUNA plans $2.5 million in independent campaign spending

CUNA plans to spend $2.5 million on targeted campaign ads in support of eight incumbent members of Congress.

CUNA operates one of the largest trade group Political Action Committees and so far for the 2022 election cycle has spent $6.5 million, according to association officials. Those contributions include donations made directly to candidate reelection campaigns.

For the eight candidates, CUNA will spend independently by producing its own ads and targeted direct mail.

“CUNA is committed to ensuring that candidates who champion credit unions’ mission to enhance financial well-being for all, whether Democrat or Republican, can count on the credit union movement when it comes to winning close races,” said Trey Hawkins, the group’s deputy chief advocacy officer for political action. “Our ads are designed to educate voters on why these pro-credit union candidates deserve their support.”
