Thanks to YOU and thousands of Friends of Traditional Banking, we successfully targeted hundreds of thousands of dollars into some of the most important races in the country. AND IT WORKED! Consider:
- In the most expensive race in Iowa history, FOTB helped Senator Joni Ernst win her historic reelection with 51.8% of the vote. Mike Olson with Lincoln Savings Bank and our Banker Board member from Iowa reports that "Joni is very appreciative of the nationwide support that Friends of Traditional Banking provided in this hard won election. FOTB definitely helped to tip the scales and sent a true friend of traditional community banking back to the Senate to fight for our interests.”
- In North Carolina, our endorsed candidate Senator Thom Tillis won a race that was so close it took a week after Election Day to call. "I so appreciate Friends of Traditional Banking for getting involved in our race," Tillis told our members in a Zoom chat last year. "It's going to be close, and your involvement could make the difference." Boy was he right!
