NY-26: A Big Endorsement For Chris Lee

by on September 17, 2008

Chris Lee got a big endorsement today from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

“I am honored to have the endorsement of the Chamber of Commerce,” said Lee. “As someone who has seen how government regulations can strangle small businesses, I will fight to reduce regulation and lower taxes to encourage economic growth and job creation in Western New York.”

The Chamber of Commerce is the world’s largest business federation representing over three million businesses and organizations, both large and small. The Chamber supports advanced legislation that promotes the interests of the business community. Historically, a Chamber endorsement has benefited many candidates. In the 2006 election alone, 222 of the 277 Chamber-endorsed candidates were successful in their bid for elective office.

“Chris Lee will be a champion for the people of Western New York and an invaluable leader on important business issues,” said Bill Miller, the U.S. Chamber’s senior vice president and political director. “On issues ranging from tax cuts to reducing energy costs, New York’s business community will have no better friend in Washington than Chris Lee.”

“It is the Chamber’s goal to help elect a pro-business Congress and work diligently in the interest of businesses large and small to advance legislation that encourages economic growth, job creation, and less intrusive federal government,” said Thomas J. Donohue, President and CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. “Chris Lee’s support of pro-business issues earned this endorsement. We believe Chris’s election to the U.S. House will help produce sustained economic growth and promote America’s competitiveness in world markets.”

Meanwhile, Alice Kryzan boasts the endorsement of liberal organizations like Emily’s List and the National Organization for Women PAC. Yeah. 

Kryzan being endorsed by groups that will endorse any pro-abortion liberal woman doesn’t exactly impress me… and certainly won’t impress a majority of the voters of the 26th district. Chris Lee being endorsed by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is much more significant, and is more likely to impress the voters.
