Chamber PAC Endorsed Candidates

Chamber PAC General Election Endorsements November 2012 Election Cycle



In order to be considered for endorsement by the Chamber PAC a candidate must be in a competitive race, if an incumbent, have a 70% or better Chamber voting record, and participate in an interview.  If running for Congress, endorsement considerations are also based upon the US Chamber voting record and applicable endorsements by BIPAC, one of our political grassroots partners based in Washington, DC.
