About the Detroit Regional Chamber PAC
The Detroit Regional Chamber Political Action Committee (PAC) was the first major organization to announce its support for Gov. Rick Snyder in the 2010 Republican primary and Mayor Mike Duggan’s write-in campaign in the 2013 Detroit mayoral primary. The Chamber PAC prides itself on being one of the most sought after, bipartisan endorsements in Michigan and focuses in large part on candidates’ stances on business issues and the potential to represent the regional business community.
