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.
