The U.S. Chamber supports pro-business candidates who advance policies that fuel economic growth and exhibit a clear willingness to back free enterprise policy solutions. The Chamber understands that for the country to succeed, businesses need to succeed. That’s why the Chamber is committed to supporting bold and unwavering pro-business advocates.  

“I am deeply honored to have the support of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce for my re-election to continue representing New York’s Second District in Congress,” said Congressman Andrew Garbarino. “Business is what moves our economy forward, especially here on Long Island, and I am dedicated to fighting for pro-growth, pro-business policies that will help our community not just recover but thrive. That means cutting through red tape, reducing over regulation, and getting government out of the way of recovery. I look forward to continuing to work with the business community to the benefit of Long Island in the 118th Congress next year.” 

On September 12, the U.S. Chamber was in New York’s Second Congressional District for a series of official and campaign events for Congressman Andrew Garbarino.  

In coordination with the Chamber’s political team, the Eastern Region office, the Holbrook Chamber of Commerce, and the Garbarino campaign, I announced the U.S. Chamber’s endorsement of Congressman Garbarino at Brinkmann’s Hardware in Holbrook. In addition to the endorsement event, we also presented Congressman Garbarino with the Chamber’s Advocate for American Business Award.
