US Chamber of Commerce Endorses Congressman Tom Emmer

The US Chamber of Commerce has again endorsed Congressman Tom Emmer’s reelection to Congress. The Chamber of Commerce is the world’s largest business federation and represents the interests of over three million businesses and organizations of every size, sector, and region.

“I am honored to receive the endorsement of the Chamber of Commerce,” said Emmer. “Giving businesses the support they need to help Minnesotans get back to work and rebuild our economy remains one of my top priorities. If we are to create a climate which affords Americans the maximum opportunity to succeed, supporting businesses is essential.”

According to Thomas Donohue, CEO of the Chamber of Commerce, “The Chamber endorses pro-business leaders in Congress and vigorously supports policies that advance economic growth, help create jobs, and promote fiscal responsibility. Last year the House passed the USMCA, renewed the charter of the Export-Import Bank, reauthorized Terrorism Risk Insurance, and restored critical resources for highway funding. While just a snapshot of important House activity in 2019, your lifetime percentage on the Chamber’s How They Voted scorecard was the driving factor in achieving this endorsement for 2020.

In challenging times, we are reminded of the importance of having leaders who understand the genius of the American system of government and free enterprise and who are willing to tackle the hard problems that confront our nation. Your continued leadership in Congress will benefit the nation as we combat the coronavirus, work to restore economic growth, and expand opportunities for all Americans.”

Fourth Amendment Rights Under Attack

For Immediate Release
July 13, 2016

I, like many, believe we must protect this country, but we cannot do so by circumventing the rights allotted to all Americans by the Constitution. One particular right this founding document granted you and me is the right against unreasonable search and seizures. Read More
