The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the largest business federation in the world, has endorsed Tom Emmer for the U.S. House of Representatives as he seeks his third term to represent Minnesota’s Sixth Congressional District. The Chamber also endorsed Emmer for Congress in 2014 and 2016.
“We’re pleased to endorse Tom Emmer in his re-election bid due to his work over the last three years to advance economic growth, help create jobs, and promote small businesses and fiscal responsibility,” said Rob Engstrom, Senior Vice President/National Political Director for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
“I am honored to receive the endorsement from the Chamber and am grateful for their continued support,” said Emmer. “I will continue to push hard for regulatory relief for Main Street banks and businesses and build on the success of tax cuts to keep our economy moving forward.”
In addition to the Chamber’s endorsement, Emmer recently received the official endorsement by acclimation from the Minnesota Republican Party.
Congressman Emmer is currently serving his second term and is on the Financial Services Committee. Emmer is also a Member of the Republican Deputy Whip Team and the House Republican Steering Committee. In January 2017, he was appointed a Deputy Chair for the NRCC.
