U.S., Missouri chambers of commerce endorse Blunt

Posted online
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce announced Aug. 16 it is endorsing Roy Blunt for Missouri U.S. Senator. The Missouri Chamber of Commerce also announced its support of the candidate.

“We’re endorsing Roy because he understands the challenges businesses are facing and will stand up for the people of Missouri during these tough economic times,” Bill Miller, the U.S. Chamber’s senior vice president and national political director, said in a news release. “He is an invaluable leader who has a common sense approach to job creation and getting America back on the road to recovery.”

The release said the U.S. Chamber will be active in the 2010 elections, planning to endorse candidates who have advocate for job creators.

In 2008, 213 of the 265 U.S. Chamber-endorsed candidates were elected, according to the release.

The Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry also announced it is backing Blunt.

“Through his unwavering support of business and tough votes during his terms in Congress, Blunt has proven he has the experience to do the best job in the U.S. Senate protecting working Missourians," Daniel Mehan, Missouri Chamber president and CEO, said in a release.

Blunt is running for the U.S. Senate against Missouri Secretary of State Robin Carnahan. The general election will be Nov. 2.[[In-content Ad]]
