CULAC raises record-breaking $5.3M for 2017-18 cycle

January 14, 2019

The Credit Union Legislative Action Council, CUNA’s federal political action committee, raised a record-breaking $5.3 million for the 2017-2018 election cycle, CUNA announced Monday. This amount places CULAC among the top trade association PACs nationally.

“Of course, the true measure of success of our PAC isn’t the money we raise, but what we do with it, and we were very pleased that we had a tremendously successful election in the 2018 cycle with more than 350 credit union candidates receiving CULAC backing that were elected to the 116th Congress,” said Trey Hawkins, CUNA’s deputy chief advocacy officer for political action.

CULAC remains among the most bipartisan national PACs, with support going almost equally to credit union-friendly candidates from both Republican and Democratic parties.
