The United States Chamber of Commerce endorsed conservative business leader Roger Williams in the Republican primary for Congressional District 25.
"It is the Chamber's goal to help elect a pro-business majority in Congress and work diligently in support of the interests of businesses large and small to advance legislation that encourages economic growth, job creation, and a less intrusive federal government," said Tom Donohue, CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. "Roger's record of support on pro-business issues earned this endorsement."
"I am honored to receive the endorsement of the US. Chamber of Commerce," Roger said in accepting the endorsement. "The Chamber knows that I am the candidate who will fight the Obama agenda and push for lower taxes, less spending, and fewer regulations. I will never stop fighting for the entrepreneurs and small business owners in this country."
