The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the world’s largest business organization announced its endorsement of Ryan Zinke for Montana’s lone Congressional seat earlier this morning.
“It is the Chambers goal to help elect a pro-business majority in Congress and work diligently to support the interests of businesses to advance legislation that encourages economic growth, job creation, and a less intrusive federal government. [Ryan Zinke’s] record on pro-business issues is what has earned him the endorsement,” said Thomas Donohue, President and CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, “We believe that [his] election to the U.S. House of Representatives will help produce sustained economic growth, help create jobs, and get our country back on track.”
Zinke, who has remained focused on providing leadership and finding solutions to government overreach throughout his campaign, stated that job creation and economic development will remain among his top priorities.
“It's an honor to have the support of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce,” said Zinke. “As our national debt and budget problems escalate we need to focus on creating an environment where businesses can succeed without government interference,” Zinke added “We can’t just tax, spend, or cut our way out of the fiscal mess we are in—we also have to grow our way out. We need to get government out of the way and let businesses succeed.”
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce represents over 3 million business organizations that vary in size and industry sector.
