Credit Union Backed Candidates Win Big in Alabama and Georgia Runoffs

On Tuesday, June 21, voters in Alabama and Georgia returned to the polls four weeks after the May 24 Primary Elections to elect candidates who, for many, very narrowly avoided a runoff.

All LSCU-endorsed candidates won significantly in yesterday’s Runoff Election. These candidates include:

  • Katie Boyd Britt for U.S. Senate (R-AL)
  • Dale Strong for Alabama’s 5th Congressional District (R-AL)
  • Dr. Rich McCormick for Georgia’s 6th Congressional District (R-GA)
  • Mike Collins for Georgia’s 10th Congressional District (R-GA)

83% of ACULAC supported candidates won in yesterday’s Runoff Election in Alabama, including:

  • State Representative Andrew Sorrell for State Auditor (R-AL)
  • Keith Kelley for Senate District 12 (R-Anniston)
  • State Representative Parker Duncan Moore for House District 4 (R-Decatur)
  • State Representative Tim Wadsworth for House District 14 (R-Arley)
  • James Lomax for House District 20  (R-Huntsville)

100% of Georgia CUPAC supported candidates won in yesterday’s Runoff Election in Georgia, including:

  • Carter Barrett for House District 24 (R- Forsyth)
  • Representative Roger Bruce for House District 61 (D-Atlanta).
  • Lauren Daniel for House District 117 (R- Locust Grove) is currently leading her opponent by 23 votes.

LSCU began vetting and supporting many of these state and federal candidates in the summer of 2021 when the 2022 Election Cycle officially commenced through a successful partisan communication, countless in-district meetings, in-district check presentations, and much more. A sincere “thank you” to all who participated in these candidate and incumbent engagement opportunities.
