U.S. Chamber of Commerce Backs Congressman Harley Rouda’s Re-election Bid

LAGUNA BEACH, CA — Congressman Harley Rouda earned the endorsement of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the world’s largest business organization, in his re-election campaign for the 48th Congressional District.  Congressman Rouda is the only Freshman endorsed by the Chamber in Southern California.

In a statement released with the announced endorsement, Thomas J. Donohue, CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, commented:

“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. [Congressman Harley Rouda’s] continued leadership in Congress will benefit the nation as we combat the coronavirus, work to restore economic growth, and expand opportunities for all Americans.”

Congressman Harley Rouda released the following statement:

“As a businessman, I know how it feels to be on the brink of losing the American Dream when a financial crisis strikes. That’s why I have worked around the clock to deliver millions to struggling Orange County mom and pop shops and reached across the aisle to push for small business tax credits during the coronavirus crisis.

I am honored to receive an endorsement from the United States Chamber of Commerce, the world’s largest business organization, for my bipartisan work to protect and grow Orange County businesses, create jobs, and advance economic growth while promoting fiscal responsibility.”

Harley for Congress Campaign Manager Alyssa Napuri also released the following statement:

“An endorsement from the United States Chamber of Commerce is a gold-standard marker of a pro-business and fiscally conservative candidate. Overwhelmingly reserved for Republicans, this stamp of approval confirms Congressman Rouda’s record of putting country over party and Orange County small businesses first.”
