A number of credit union groups are sponsoring a new round of advertisements in Washington publications aimed at bringing attention to "credit unions' role in serving consumers." It is the third round of advertisements to appear in Capitol Hill publications such as Roll Call and The Hill. The ad features letters to CUNA from the Republican and Democratic presidential candidates. Both letters support credit unions' tax exemption-an issue upon which both candidates agrees, says the ad.

"These credit union ads take the high road in elevating awareness of the 85 million credit union member/owners, as well as why credit unions are different from other financial institutions," said Richard Gose, CUNA vice president of political affairs.

The ads are being sponsored by CUNA and the state leagues, NAFCU, CUNA Mutual Group, and U.S. Central.
