U.S. and Illinois Chambers of Commerce Endorse Rodney Davis for Congress in 2022 Election

Taylorville, IL — The U.S. and Illinois Chambers of Commerce have announced their endorsement of Rodney Davis for Congress in the 2022 Election, citing his record of cutting taxes, working to bring jobs back to America, and delivering results for his constituents. A majority of Chamber members are small and mid-sized businesses.

“I’m proud to be a strong advocate for pro-growth, conservative policies that create jobs, increase take-home pay, and grow our economy,” said Congressman Rodney Davis. “Whether it’s taking on out-of-control inflation, fighting tax hikes and regulatory assaults on businesses, or fixing our broken supply chains, I’m working in Congress to advance policies that support small business and Main Street America. I’d like to thank the U.S. Chamber for their support in this election. We must save our free-enterprise system from a tax-and-spend, big government agenda.”

“Congressman Rodney Davis’ strong record and commitment to leadership, while delivering results for the constituents and businesses of Illinois, are impressive,” said U.S. Chamber of Commerce Vice President of Government Affairs and Chief of Staff Ron Eidshaug. “Rep. Davis understands the challenges and economic needs facing job creators, the workforce, and families in Illinois, and his relentless commitment for pro-growth solutions to help bring manufacturing back to Illinois from overseas, lower taxes on working families, and enact policies that will support the American Dream have earned him the endorsement of the U.S. Chamber. We are proud to support Rep. Davis’ re-election.”

Rodney Davis has long been an advocate for pro-growth policies that boost Main Street and support workers. Davis helped write the Trump tax cuts, which cut taxes for small businesses and working families, and has now introduced legislation to make those tax cuts permanent. He passed into law a unique public-private partnership that empowers employers to make tax-free student debt payments on behalf of their employees, up to $5,250/year.

Davis is also fighting the tax hikes and regulatory assault on business coming from the Biden Administration and Democrats in Congress.

Although they share similar pro-life and Second Amendment stances, Davis said what separates him from his opponent is that he has a record of governing and he ensures that the country is coming up with solutions rather than just saying no.

“We actually have to govern in Washington,” Davis said.

The US Chamber of Commerce Vice President and Governmental Affairs Chief of Staff Ron Eidshaug said they endorsed Davis because he has stood with the business committee for lower taxes and was an architect of the Trump tax bill. Eidshaug said those were huge wins for the business community.

Davis said he and his opponent, US Rep. Mary Miller, have a lot of similarities when it comes to having 100% Pro-Life voting record and standing up for the Second Amendment.

“But I’ve got a record of actually governing. I’m somebody who makes sure that I don’t vote with the squad to defend our military. I make sure that we come up with solutions rather than just saying ‘no’. That’s my record. That’s why I got the endorsement of the US Chamber and that’s what I’m going to continue to do,” Davis said.
