Credit union backed candidates celebrate big wins in Alabama and Georgia runoffs

TALLAHASSEE, FL (June 22, 2022) — On Tuesday, June 21, voters in Alabama and Georgia returned to the polls four weeks after the May 24 Primary Elections to elect candidates who, for many, very narrowly avoided a runoff.

All LSCU-endorsed candidates won significantly in yesterday’s Runoff Election. These candidates include:

  • Katie Boyd Britt for U.S. Senate (R-AL)
  • Dale Strong for Alabama’s 5th Congressional District (R-AL)
  • Dr. Rich McCormick for Georgia’s 6th Congressional District (R-GA)
  • Mike Collins for Georgia’s 10th Congressional District (R-GA)

83% of ACULAC supported candidates won in yesterday’s Runoff Election in Alabama, including:

  • State Representative Andrew Sorrell for State Auditor (R-AL)
  • Keith Kelley for Senate District 12 (R-Anniston)
  • State Representative Parker Duncan Moore for House District 4 (R-Decatur)
  • State Representative Tim Wadsworth for House District 14 (R-Arley)
  • James Lomax for House District 20  (R-Huntsville)

100% of Georgia CUPAC supported candidates won in yesterday’s Runoff Election in Georgia, including:

  • State Representative Roger Bruce for House District 61 (D-Atlanta)

LSCU began vetting and supporting many of these state and federal candidates in the summer of 2021 when the 2022 Election Cycle officially commenced through a successful partisan communication, countless in-district meetings, in-district check presentations, and much more.
