CUNA’s Nussle, Donovan, Gose talk post-election picture for CUs

CUNA staff prepares for a post-election webinar breaking down Tuesday's election results.

Credit unions are well positioned after Tuesday’s election into the 116th Congress, CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle said during CUNA’s post-election webinar Thursday. Nussle was joined by Chief Advocacy Officer Ryan Donovan and Chief Political Officer Richard Gose to break down the election results, which can also be found in great detail in CUNA’s post-election whitepaper.

“In the wake of this election, our goal remains the same, to move forward in the best interests of America’s credit unions,” said CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle. “CUNA, our political action committee – the Credit Union Legislative Action Committee (CULAC) invested nearly $7 million in 388 House and Senate races this year, we’ve won 349 of them, with the total number to rise as more races are called. That’s an incredibly strong performance and ensures that we will have a credit union friendly Congress. I cannot stress enough the great work all of us did to ensure we had a successful outcome.”

Gose credited CUNA’s Member Activation Program and CUNA’s league partners and credit unions for generating “Get Out The Vote” buzz using CUNA’s “Credit Unions Vote” MAP Campaign, which CUNA launched in September.
