The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has endorsed U.S. Rep. Mike McIntyre’s re-election bid in the 7th Congressional District because of his “consistent pro-business record,” according to a news release from the McIntyre campaign.
In an endorsement letter, Thomas Donohue, president and chief executive officer of the chamber, wrote:
“At no other time in our nation’s history has it been more critical that Members of Congress provide leadership that protects and advances the interests of the business community. We believe that your re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives will help produce sustained economic growth, help create more jobs, and get our country back on track.”
McIntyre, a Lumberton Democrat, is being challenged by state Sen. David Rouzer, a Johnston County Republican, in the November election in the 7th Congressional District.
