Detroit Regional Chamber’s Political Action Committee Announces Endorsement of U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow in General Election

DETROIT, October 18, 2012 – Today, the Detroit Regional Chamber’s Political Action Committee (PAC) Board of Directors announced its endorsement of U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow in the general election in Michigan.

“Debbie Stabenow has been a tremendous champion for Michigan in Congress,” said Brad Williams, vice president of government relations for the Detroit Regional Chamber. “The Chamber is endorsing Senator Stabenow because of her strong support of key business priorities such as the New International Trade Crossing, small business growth and regional transit. Senator Stabenow’s leadership in Washington has helped move Michigan in a positive direction during very difficult times.”

The Chamber PAC Board of Directors regularly meets to identify and support pro-business candidates and policies that support the Chamber’s public policy priorities. After careful consideration, the Chamber PAC Board of Directors made endorsements based on responses to a Chamber PAC survey, input from PAC members and personal interviews with leading candidates interested in the Chamber’s endorsement.

“We would also like to thank Congressman Pete Hoekstra for his public service and his willingness to stand as a candidate for the U.S. Senate,” Williams said. “His approach to taxation reform and entitlement spending is critical to our nation and should be addressed urgently. We look forward to working with him in the future.”
