Washington, D.C. – Today, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce announced its endorsement of Representative Derek Kilmer to represent Washington’s Sixth 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.
“Representative Derek Kilmer has a strong record of leading and delivering results for his constituents in Washington,” said U.S. Chamber Northwest Region Vice President, Chris Eyler. “Rep. Kilmer is committed to ensuring that business owners have the tools they need to support growth and create jobs. His dedication to pro-growth policies and free enterprise solutions has earned him the endorsement of the U.S. Chamber. We are proud to support Congressman Derek Kilmer in his re-election."
“I am working every day to grow jobs and bring more economic opportunities to more people in more places. Receiving the U.S. Chamber of Commerce endorsement for these efforts – and for trying to solve problems in a bipartisan way – is a real honor,” said Rep. Kilmer. “I grew up in Port Angeles and I know first-hand that, even when places like Seattle are booming, the story is often different for folks living outside the shadow of the Space Needle. That’s why I am laser focused on supporting our local employers and working to grow the economic pie for our region. I want to ensure everyone – regardless of where they live – has the opportunity to earn a good living in our ever-changing economy.”
