CU-backed candidate wins House seat
WASHINGTON (3/13/08)—A credit union-backed candidate has made a successful bid to win an Indiana seat in the House vacated by the death of his grandmother, the late U.S. Rep. Julia Carson. Furthermore, House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank (D-Mass.) has said that the newly elected Democrat Andre Carson may likely fill his grandmother’s place on that panel. (Roll Call Feb. 14) Carson won a special election Tuesday that enables him to fill the seat for the remaining 10 months of the elder Carson’s term. (Indianapolis Star March 12) The younger Carson won 54% to 43% over Republican state Rep. Jon Elrod. To win a full term, he will have to win a May primary election and the November general election. CUNA’s Credit Union Legislative Action Council and the Indiana Credit Union League supported Carson with the maximum allowed $5,000 donation, according to Hawkins.
