The U.S. Cham­ber of Com­merce en­dorsed busi­ness­man Bri­an El­lis (R) in his primary race against Rep. Justin Amash (R). El­lis has also been en­dorsed by the Michigan Cham­ber of Com­merce and the Grand Rap­ids Cham­ber of Com­merce.

“In today’s eco­nomy we need lead­ers who will ad­vance policies that re­turn our coun­try to its full growth po­ten­tial,” said Rob Eng­strom, the Cham­ber’s polit­ic­al dir­ect­or, in a state­ment. “Bri­an’s private sec­tor ex­per­i­ence and proven con­ser­vat­ive re­cord makes him the clear choice for voters fo­cused on job cre­ation and free en­ter­prise.” (re­lease)

El­lis has trailed by about 20 points in three auto­mated polls since June.
