ChamberPAC Endorses Southwest PA House and Senate Candidates in 2022 General Election

ChamberPAC, the political arm of the Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry, today announced its first round of endorsements for candidates running for state legislative seats in the Southwestern Pennsylvania region in the upcoming 2022 General Election.  ChamberPAC supports pro-job, pro-growth candidates and incumbent lawmakers who are dedicated to working together to improve Pennsylvania’s competitiveness, encourage economic growth, and building a stronger future for the Commonwealth.  On Tuesday, November 8, all of the 203 seats in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, as well as 25 of the 50 state Senate seats, will be up for election.


“Pennsylvania is an extraordinary state with so much to offer,” said PA Chamber President and CEO Luke Bernstein.  “To achieve our full potential, we need to elect candidates who will prioritize policies that will strengthen Pennsylvania’s competitive edge, promote job creation and allow the private sector to thrive.  We are confident that this year’s ChamberPAC endorsed candidates will do just that. Working Together for PA, we can show the world that Pennsylvania is open for business through legislation that advances the Commonwealth’s economy.  On behalf of the state’s broad-based business community, we are proud to offer our support to this year’s ChamberPAC endorsed candidates.”
