Three credit union supporters were successful in Tuesday’s primary elections in Nebraska. They were supported by the Nebraska Credit Union League, and the Credit Union Legislative Action Council, CUNA’s federal political action committee.
Among the winners Tuesday is Nebraska State Sen. Mike Flood, who won the Republican primary and will run in November for the seat left open by the resignation of Rep. Jeff Fortenberry.
Flood will also run for the rest of Fortenberry’s term in a special election June 28. He will face Democratic State Sen. Parry Pansing Brooks in both elections.
As of this week, 44 out of 45 credit union-backed candidates have been successful in the 2022 cycle. Complete results are available to view at cuna.org/elections, and the page will be updated with each week’s results. The 45th race—for Texas’ 28th district—is currently in a run-off to be held May 24.
CULAC, one of the five largest trade association PACs nationally, is the credit union system’s principal means of engaging in federal elections. CULAC works with state Leagues to identify, vet, and support candidates for Congress of either party who are supportive of credit unions and the CUNA-League system’s efforts to promote financial well-being for all.
