CU-backed Candidate Elected to Fill Pennsylvania Delegation Vacancy

Credit union supporter Fred Keller (R) won a special election to represent Pennsylvania’s 12th Congressional District in Congress Tuesday, defeating Democratic challenger Marc Friedenberg with 68.1% of the vote. Keller was supported by CUNA’s political action committee, the Credit Union Legislative Action Council (CULAC), and the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association.

Keller, a current state representative, will take over the seat of Rep. Tom Marino (R-PA), who resigned in January.

He has been a strong credit union supporter during his time in Pennsylvania state office and will become the newest member of the 116th Congress when sworn in in the coming days.
