Both the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) announced their endorsement of Republican Senator Scott Brown in the race against Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren this week.
“Scott Brown has been an exceptional advocate for small businesses and entrepreneurs,” said Diane Giblin, a member of the NFIB/MA Leadership Council.
“He understands the challenges we face and we can always count on him to listen to our concerns and not demonize or belittle our achievements.”
Warren a threat to free enterprise
“No other candidate in 2012 represents a greater threat to free enterprise than Professor Elizabeth Warren,” said Rob Engstrom, senior vice president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
“As the originator of the ‘you didn’t build that’ philosophy and a believer that no one in this country succeeded on their own, Professor Warren has shown a deep hostility toward our job creators and free enterprise system.”
Brown launched his own pro-business initiative on Friday when he announced “Small Business Owners for Brown” and held a Worcester area Small Business Roundtable at Polar Beverages Inc. in Auburn.
After the senator’s tax speech on Tuesday, Richard Kennedy, president and CEO of the Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce, spoke out about the end to the Bush-era tax breaks looming a few months away on January 1, 2013.
