CU-backed candidate wins Oregon Democratic primary
WASHINGTON (5/22/08)--A candidate supported by the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) and the Credit Union Association of Oregon (CUAO) has won the Oregon Democratic primary. Sen. Kurt Schrader (D-Ore.) Wednesday won the Democratic primary for the 5th Congressional District and will compete to fill the seat that will be left vacant by Rep. Darlene Hooley (D-Ore.) in November. He received the maximum $5,000 from the Credit Union Legislative Action Council (CULAC). Schrader will face a tight, closely fought election in November against Republican Mike Erickson, according to Trey Hawkins, CUNA political director. Hooley has worked on legislation and chaired a task force dealing with identity theft and security issues.
