U.S. Chamber Backs David Jolly Over Alex Sink

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce backed David Jolly, the Republican running in a special congressional election, on Monday. Jolly takes on former state CFO Alex Sink, the Democrat in the race, and Libertarian Lucas Overby in the special election on March 11.

The U.S. Chamber is proud to put our full support behind David Jolly and highlight the clear distinction between the candidates on pro-growth, job creating issues in this race, said Rob Engstrom, the vice president of the U.S. Chamber, on Monday David will fight for American free enterprise and Pinellas county jobs. We stand strongly with him and look forward to working with David to get our economy back on track.

I thank the U.S. Chamber of Commerce for its endorsement today, said Jolly. With the loss of Congressman Young, it is critical that we elect someone with a record of protecting and growing jobs here in Pinellas. Ive fought for the industry by joining with my colleagues here today to start and run the Florida Federal Contractors Association, with the sole purpose to create new business opportunities for Pinellas companies.

Together, weve worked with small and large businesses throughout Pinellas to expand manufacturing, high-tech, and defense jobs for our skilled and unskilled workforce, Jolly added. Its a commitment Ill continue in Washington. Ill work from day one to reduce the burden of overregulation, to reduce taxes, and to support entrepreneurs and job creators throughout Pinellas and that includes rolling back the onerous impact Obamacare continues to have on jobs here in Pinellas.
