GOSHEN, NY – On Monday, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce announced its endorsement of Colin Schmitt (R) to represent New York’s Eighteenth Congressional District. The Chamber endorses pro-business candidates for federal office who will vigorously support public policy that will advance economic growth, support jobs, and promote fiscal responsibility.
“As a state Assemblyman, Colin Schmitt has a record of leading through bipartisanship and supporting the residents of the Hudson Valley,” said U.S. Chamber of Commerce Eastern Region Vice President Stephen P. McAllister. “Colin has demonstrated a commitment to supporting free enterprise, pro-growth solutions, and the American business community. The U.S. Chamber is proud to endorse Colin Schmitt and looks forward to partnering with him in the next Congress.”
“I want to thank the U.S. Chamber of Commerce for its endorsement and support for our campaign,” said Colin Schmitt. “With three million members, the Chamber is the leading voice for American business and an important advocate for the policies needed to lift our economy out of recession and create high-paying new jobs for families across the Hudson Valley. I’m honored to have the Chamber’s support, and, as a member of the House of Representatives, I look forward to partnering with them to invest in our region’s future.”
"Colin Schmitt has been a friend of The Business Council and supporter of pro-business legislation during his time in the state legislature,” said Business Council of New York State President and CEO Heather Briccetti Mulligan. “We believe, if elected to Congress, Schmitt would continue to fight for New York State businesses and encourage economic growth throughout the state.”
