CULAC to Spend $1.8 Million for Vulnerable Incumbents

The political action committee for the Credit Union National Association will spend $1.8 million in independent expenditures supporting vulnerable incumbent members of Congress, according to The Hill.

An independent expenditure is a political campaign communication that expressly advocates for the election or defeat of a clearly identified candidate that is not made in cooperation, consultation or concert with or at the request or suggestion of a candidate, candidate's authorized committee or political party.

The Credit Union Legislative Action Committee (CULAC) has bought digital, radio and mail ads backing vulnerable Democratic Senators Jon Tester (MT) and Joe Donnelly (IN) and Republican Representatives Pete Sessions (TX) and Steve Chabot (OH).

All four of these members of Congress have championed legislation supported by credit unions.

For example, CULAC will spend $525,000 on digital ads and direct mail supporting Donnelly.

The Hill mentions other candidates that are being supported by CULAC.
