“There is a lot at stake in the August 6 primary election. As we seek to grow the economy and protect free enterprise in our state, we must elect pro-jobs lawmakers to the Missouri General Assembly,” said Roger Archibald, chairman of the Missouri Chamber PAC. “The dysfunction of the 2024 legislative session demonstrated the importance of electing candidates who are truly committed to serving the people of Missouri. These 18 candidates endorsed by the Missouri Chamber PAC will come to Jefferson City ready to take action to move Missouri forward.”

The Missouri Chamber PAC is the political action arm of the Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Missouri’s largest business association. The committee goes through a rigorous and deliberative candidate endorsement selection process, which includes analysis of candidate positions on key economic issues and incumbent candidate vote ratings.

Today’s endorsement announcement is a part of a larger Missouri Chamber PAC effort to elect pro-jobs, pro-business candidates who support private sector job creation and economic growth.

The Missouri Chamber PAC previously announced its support of Mike Kehoe for Missouri Governor and Lincoln Hough for Missouri Lieutenant Governor.

Additional announcements about candidate endorsements will be made ahead of the November general election.
