America’s Credit Unions is supporting a candidate running to fill New York’s open U.S. House seat Tuesday in a special general election. Former Rep. Tom Suozzi, D-N.Y., is running to fill the 3rd Congressional District seat, which was vacated by former Rep. George Santos, R-N.Y., after his expulsion in December.
