Washington, D.C. – On Monday, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce announced its endorsement of Representative Mike Gallagher to represent Wisconsin’s Eighth 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 Mike Gallagher’s record of leading and delivering results for the constituents and businesses of Wisconsin are significant,” said John Kirchner, U.S. Chamber of Commerce Midwest Region Vice President. “Rep. Gallagher is dedicated to pro-growth policies and free enterprise solutions that will ensure economic growth for Wisconsin’s workforce and the nation. The U.S. Chamber is proud to support Representative Gallagher in his re-election.”

"Small businesses in Northeast Wisconsin have been crushed by the ongoing workforce crisis and rampant inflation. The only way to turn things around is to rein in reckless spending and push pro-growth policies that cut red tape and get people back to work,” said Rep. Gallagher. “I’ve worked with businesses across our community to develop common sense solutions to the problems they face, but this work isn’t done. I’m proud to have the Chamber’s support as I continue to fight for small businesses and the hardworking men and women they employ.”

"The Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce congratulates Representative Mike Gallagher on earning the endorsement of the U.S. Chamber and business community," said Kurt Bauer, President and CEO of WMC. "Rep. Gallagher delivers for his constituents, and he understands the significant pressures inflation has put on job creators, the workforce, and families in Wisconsin's 8th Congressional District. We appreciate him for working tirelessly to address these issues affecting the economy of Wisconsin and look forward to continue working closely with his office in the next Congress."
