Credit union champions won their primary races in Hawaii Saturday and Alaska Tuesday. Credit Union Legislative Action Council (CULAC) and state leagues have backed 279 credit union champions with a 96% success rate this election cycle.
In Hawaii, former state Sen. Jill Tokuda, D-02, won the open seat primary with support from CULAC and the Hawaii Credit Union League.
