Michigan PAC states 25th largest
PLYMOUTH, Mich. (8/6/08)--Michigan credit unions’ political action committee has retained its No. 25 spot in the state. The Michigan Campaign Finance Network released a list of the 150 largest state Political Action Committees (PACs) for the 2008 election cycle thus far, and MCULAF (credit unions’ PAC at the state level) has maintained a foothold in the top 25. From Jan. 1, 2007, to July 20, 2008, MCULAF earned the No. 25 spot by raising $256,167, a 48% increase compared with the amount raised during the same time period in the 2006 election cycle. At the end of 2007, MCULAF was the 23rd largest state PAC in Michigan, so while we have slipped a couple spots since then, a strong fund-raising effort can keep us in top 25 territory at the end of this election year,” said Michigan Credit Union League Executive Vice President Patrick La Pine. “With all credit unions pushing for 100% or more of their MCULAF fund-raising goal, we can stay ahead of the PACs ranked below us that will likely make a huge push over the next three months," he said. La Pine thanked credit unions for their efforts.
