Michigan CU league supports candidates that did well in elections
LANSING, Mich. (11/9/10)--Candidates supported by the Michigan Credit Union League (MCUL) fared well in both Congressional and state races, with 86% of endorsed candidates winning election. MCUL-backed candidates included Republican Gov.-elect Rick Snyder and U.S. Rep. Gary Peters, (D-Bloomfield Township), who benefited from credit union radio advertisements (Michigan Monitor Nov. 8). Overall, 13 of 15 candidates for Congress supported by MCUL were successful, as were 98 of 114 endorsed candidates for state-level house and senate races. The MCUL reported that it boosted advocacy efforts in 2010 to significantly impact midterm elections and build credit union support during a “tumultuous time” at the state level.
