Maine league endorses 99 candidates
PORTLAND, Maine (10/1/12)--The Maine Credit Union League has endorsed 99 candidates for the 2012 Maine House and Senate elections.

For the Maine House elections, the league endorsed 70 candidates--35 Democrats, 34 Republicans and one independent (Weekly Update Sept. 28).

For the Maine Senate elections, the league endorsed 29 candidates--17 Republicans, 11 Democrates and one independent.

The endorsements were made based on responses to a questionnaire, which had a 45% return rate from candidates; candidates' voting record, if applicable; and their relationship with credit unions.

Of the 99 candidates endorsed, 12 were current or former credit union board members, six of whom are still active.

All the endorsed candidates received letters from the league last week.

"Our list of endorsements again reinforces that we are a bipartisan organization that places a high priority on supporting candidates who support credit unions, regardless of their party," said John Murphy, league president. "This positions us well as working with both parties."
