Missouri Chamber PAC endorses pro-jobs candidates

The Missouri Chamber PAC, the political action arm of the Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry, has selected the list of pro-jobs candidates it will endorse in the 2012 General Election.

“These candidates meet the standards employers should demand from the individuals they elect to protect their businesses and job growth for the entire state,” said Daniel P. Mehan, Missouri Chamber president/CEO. “A Missouri Chamber PAC endorsement ensures that a candidate is committed to pro-jobs policy and will be an effective advocate for employer issues once that candidate secures a seat in the Missouri Legislature.”

The selection process is rigorous and is based on input from Missouri Chamber members, intense analysis of legislative vote records and other efforts to move pro-jobs legislation forward. Non-incumbent candidates are selected based on member input, personal interviews and candidate surveys.
