CULAC-backed Deutch of Fla. cruises to House victory
WASHINGTON (4/15/10)—Ted Deutch, a Florida Democrat who has indicated support for credit union issues, was victorious in his special election for the U.S. House seat from the 19th district. Deutch, a former state Senator, will fill the seat vacated by Democrat Robert Wexler, who left Congress earlier this year to become president of the S. Daniel Abraham Center for Middle East Peace. Wexler had served in the House since 1997. Republican Ed Lynch also challenged for Wexler’s seat. CUNA's Credit Union Legislative Action Council (CULAC) and the League of Southeastern Credit Unions supported the new congressman with $10,000 in financial support. Deutch won with over 64% of the vote.
