Elections

Electing pro-business candidates

Before elected officials take the oath of office, they’re on the campaign trail, working hard for support from voters. We’re there too, asking the questions on economic issues and state public policy to those who want to occupy the halls of the Legislature and governor’s office. 

We endorse candidates who support pro-jobs, pro-business policies that will help employers stay and grow in Minnesota, and make our state more affordable for all of us. Each election cycle presents a new opportunity to elect policymakers who encourage business growth in the decisions they make. 

Contact RaeAnna Buchholz to contribute your personal dollars to the Minnesota Chamber Leadership Fund PAC and be certain your money will be strategically used to elect pro-business candidates in Minnesota.
