Highlights Giannoulias’ ‘Record of Economic Failure’

WASHINGTON, D.C.—The U.S. Chamber of Commerce today launched the television ad “Economic Failure” throughout Illinois to highlight Alexi Giannoulias’ anti-business record.

“Illinois’ voters want a candidate with common sense policies that create jobs, not a pattern of highly questionable activity that has left a trail of economic problems,” said Bill Miller, national political director for the Chamber. “This ad will remind Illinois’ voters that a candidate’s record matters when it comes to job creation, especially at a time when more than 1 in 10 people in Illinois are looking for work.”

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world’s largest business federation representing the interests of more than 3 million businesses of all sizes, sectors, and regions, as well as state and local chambers and industry associations.
