The U.S. Chamber of Commerce announced its endorsement Wednesday afternoon of North Carolina’s Ted Budd for U.S. Senate. The announcement comes as Planned Parenthood announces a $50 million dump of campaign money into North Carolina and other states to impact individual states’ abortion policies after the overturn of Roe V. Wade.

In an event held Wednesday at Pitt Electric in Garner, national chamber leaders recognized Budd.

“Congressman Ted Budd’s commitment to pro-business solutions and his record of leadership on behalf of job creators, entrepreneurs, and the residents of North Carolina are exactly what the hard-working people of this state need in their next senator,” said Ashlee Rich Stephenson, senior political strategist for the U.S. Chamber. “Rep. Budd is a staunch defender of free enterprise and pro-growth solutions – a stark contrast to his opponent, who supports more big government overreach that will harm hard-working North Carolinians. In the U.S. Senate, Rep. Budd will support common-sense policies that bolster small businesses and the work force, unlike his opponent, who supports raising taxes on working families.”
