U.S. Chamber of Commerce & Michigan Chamber Back John James for U.S. Senate

Livonia, Mich. – The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and Michigan Chamber of Commerce today announced their endorsements of John James for U.S. Senate.

“We need more business owners and fewer career politicians on the floor of the U.S. Senate to support Michigan jobs and job creators. I am grateful for the support of our business leaders at both the Michigan and U.S. Chambers of Commerce,” James said. “I am the walking result of the American Dream, but for too many people that dream may never become a reality. We need to make sure every Michigander who wants to work for it can be on the path to prosperity. We must expand the tax base in this country, not only by creating more jobs, but by creating more job creators. We need to find ways to get more capital in the hands of rural and urban entrepreneurs and let them open up small businesses in disadvantaged and distressed communities.”

“As our country faces many challenges and is collectively working to not just reopen our economy, but return to growth and expanded opportunities for all Americans, we need leaders like John James,” Chamber CEO Tom Donohue said.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world’s largest business federation representing more than three million businesses and organizations of every size, sector and region.

“Leadership matters in both the public sector and the private sector,” noted Michigan Chamber President & CEO Rich Studley. “Michigan needs better and stronger leadership in the U.S. Senate, and that is why I am pleased to announce the Michigan Chamber’s endorsement of John James for the U.S. Senate.”

“James is an entrepreneur who is passionate about our state and country and he will be a dynamic, energetic and effective leader in the U.S. Senate,” Studley added.

“John James has a proven record of success leading his family’s business and a distinguished military career serving our country in Iraq as a Ranger-qualified aviation officer,” said Jim Holcomb, Senior Executive Vice President & General Counsel for the Michigan Chamber. “James’ background, personality and leadership are what our Country needs during these challenging times.”

The Michigan Chamber is a statewide business organization that represents approximately 5,000 employers, trade associations and local chambers of commerce. The Chamber represents businesses of every size and type in all 83 counties of the state. It was established in 1959 to be an advocate for Michigan job providers in the legislative, political and legal process.
