The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which represents the interests of over 3 million job creators of every size and scope, has endorsed Vicky Hartzler for Congress.
Hartzler said: "I am honored to have my candidacy endorsed by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. As a small business owner, I firmly believe that we must get government out of the way so that our entrepreneurs can do what they do best: create jobs.
"I will continue to fight for legislation that would end thousands of job killing regulations. I will continue to fight to end Obamacare, which is destroying thousands of jobs. I will continue to fight for a fairer and simpler tax code that will make America more competitive globally.
"President Obama believes that government creates jobs. I believe the only path to economic prosperity is to empower individuals and small business owners to create jobs. It is for these reasons that I am excited to have the endorsement of the Chamber of Commerce."
