Dean HellerA past FOTB endorsed candidate is up for reelection

In 2012, Congressman Dean Heller, a former banking executive, became Friends of Traditional Banking's first endorsement as he sought to represent Nevada in the U.S. Senate. Our fledgling group helped rally hundreds of bankers around the country to donate to Heller--totaling over $200,000. His race was a squeaker, edging out Rep. Shelley Berkley in one of the closest races of 2012.

Since then, Senator Heller has indeed been a friend. "Whenever our bankers meet with him in Washington D.C. he engages in real and meaningful conversations about what is needed to help Nevada's economy grow and how to accomplish it against a challenging political landscape," said Phyllis Gurgevich, President and CEO of the Nevada Bankers Association.
"He understands the critical role and contributions of the banking industry to a stable and growing economy. Senator Heller can be counted on to find and support the right solutions that allow growth without compromising safety and soundness," she said. His reelection is shaping up to be another close race, too.

Friends of Traditional Banking is a non-partisan grassroots effort organized by bankers in 2012 to improve the political and regulatory environment for the traditional banking industry in the U.S. FOTB is the inverse of a PAC--instead of spreading a little bit of money to a lot of campaigns, they focus a lot of money on a couple of key campaigns.
