HELENA, MT – Today, Matt Rosendale, State Auditor and candidate for Montana’s lone Congressional seat received the endorsement of the United States Chamber of Commerce. Matt has a proven track record as a successful businessman and public servant, and during his tenure in the Montana State Legislature, was repeatedly awarded the title of Champion of Business by the Montana Chamber of Commerce.
“I am incredibly honored to have the endorsement of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in my race to represent Montana in Congress. I will fight for our small businesses because I understand the tremendous amount of work it takes to build a business and make it successful,” said Rosendale. “Our small businesses are the backbone of our economy and right now, they are struggling. We need representation in Congress that understands the importance of small businesses, the struggles they face, and the important role they play in our economy and in our communities.”
As Majority Leader in the Montana State Senate and as State Auditor, Matt put his business skills to work for Montanans by working to cut needless regulations and eliminate wasteful spending of taxpayer funds. Matt cut operating costs in the Montana State Auditors office by 23% and when Montana’s budget was in crisis, he refused a pay increase even when every other state elected official – Republican and Democrat – took one.
In their endorsement, U.S Chamber CEO Thomas J. Donohhue, stated that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce recognized Matt’s strong history of support for the business community.
“In difficult times, we are reminded of the importance of having leaders that understand the genius of the American system of government and free enterprise and who are willing to tackle the hard problems that confront our nation. As we take on this pandemic and work to not just reopen our economy, but return to growth, and expanded opportunities for all Americans, we need leaders like Matt Rosendale who have a proven track record of legislating responsibly and standing up for good policies. The U.S. Chamber is proud to lend its endorsement to Matt Rosendale and looks forward to partnering with him in the future.”
In addition today’s endorsement by the U.S. Chamber, Matt is the only candidate endorsed by President Trump and “A” rated by the NRA.
