WASHINGTON, DC (June 15, 2022) — Credit union champions claimed 15 primary race victories in Maine, Nevada, South Carolina, and North Dakota. Credit Union Legislative Action Council (CULAC) and state leagues have backed 180 credit union-friendly candidates this cycle with a 98% success rate.

In Nevada, CULAC and the Nevada Credit Union League supported five successful candidates, including:

  • Rep. Dina Titus, a Democrat who faced a tough primary against Amy Vilela in the 1st District.
  • Rep. Mark Amodei, R-02, defeated Douglas County Commissioner Danny Tarkanian.
  • Rep. Susie Lee, a Democrat who ran in the newly drawn 3rd District.
    • Rep. Lee was one of the 21 Democratic House members who wrote a letter to House Democratic leadership in opposition to expanded Internal Revenue Service reporting requirements.

In South Carolina, CULAC and Carolinas Credit Union League backed 7 successful candidates, including Rep. Nancy Mace, R-01.

CULAC partnered with the Maine Credit Union League and the Dakota Credit Union Association to support three successful candidates across Maine and North Dakota.

CULAC is one of the five largest trade association PACs and among the most bipartisan PACs in the country. CULAC works with state leagues to identify, vet, and back congressional candidates who support credit unions and the CUNA-League system’s efforts to promote financial well-being for all.
