Iowa league PAC raises 200000
DES MOINES, Iowa (10/31/08)--The Iowa Credit Union League’s state political action committee, the Credit Union Political Action Committee (CUPAC), will break its fundraising record for the second year in a row. This year, supporters have surpassed CUPAC’s goal of $200,000 by raising $213,297.21--with two months left to go. “It is particularly impressive since all our fundraising must come from individual contributions, as Iowa law doesn’t permit corporate contributions to political action committees,” said Justin Hupfer, league vice president of governmental affairs. “We anticipate this level of fundraising support will put CUPAC among the top three or four of more than 200 PACs in the state,” Hupfer added. CUPAC uses personal contributions to provide bipartisan support to state legislators who support credit unions. Its mission is to raise funds in compliance with state law to increase credit unions’ impact in the political process.
