CUs support Dane Eagle for open Florida Congressional seat

August 17, 2020

More than 20 credit union supporters in Alaska, Florida and Wyoming will be on the ballot in Tuesday’s primary elections. Credit union-backed candidates have been successful in more than 97% of races in the 2020 election cycle.

In Florida’s 19th Congressional district, credit unions are supporting State House Majority Leader Dane Eagle in the Republican primary, where he is one of nine candidates. Eagle is competing for the seat left open by the retiring Rep. Francis Rooney (R).

He has been a strong credit union champion during his time in the state legislature, and has been endorsed by the League of Southeastern Credit Unions (LSCU).

CUNA and LSCU have partnered to support Eagle with more than $320,000 in direct mail and digital ads targeting 40,000 credit union households.

CUNA is also supporting another candidate for the Wyoming Senate seat that will be left open by the retiring Sen. Mike Enzi (R). Credit unions are supporting Cynthia Lummis, former Congresswoman, in the Republican primary.
