Credit unions are supporting several candidates in Tuesday’s primary elections, which take place in Arizona and Florida, and a candidate in a runoff election in Oklahoma. Candidates are backed by credit union leagues and the Credit Union Legislative Action Council, CUNA’s political action committee.
In Oklahoma, credit unions are supporting businessman Kevin Hern (R) in the runoff election to replace Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R), who was named administrator of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.
Hern finished second in a June primary election to Tulsa County District Attorney Tim Harris, getting 23% of the vote to Harris’ 28%. Hern and Harris will face off again Tuesday for the Republican nomination to fill the seat left open by Bridenstine.
