WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce announced its endorsement of Representative María Elvira Salazar to represent Florida’s Twenty-Seventh 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 María Elvira Salazar has a proven track record of leadership and delivering results for the residents and local businesses of South Florida,” said U.S. Chamber of Commerce Senior Political Strategist Ashlee Rich Stephenson. “Rep. Salazar is committed to free enterprise solutions that will move Florida and our nation forward.

From Calle Ocho in Little Havana to Miracle Mile in Coral Gables, it's the honor of my lifetime to represent so many hardworking men and women," said Congresswoman María Elvira Salazar. "I'm proud to be endorsed by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce because I'll never stop fighting for our nation's job creators and look forward to continuing working in a bipartisan way to empower our small business owners."
