The President of the Chamber of Commerce is not impressed by Senator Ted Cruz.
“He has his right as a member of the Senate to get out and push the things he supports or resist the things he doesn’t support and we’re going to try to work with him wherever we can,” Donahue said during an event hosted by the Christian Science Monitor.
A reporter said, “people are assuming that the business community would kind of like him to sit down and shut up,” Donahue replied, “Well, that might be one thing we could work on.”
Supporting conservative, business-friendly politicians is more or less the default position of the Chamber of Commerce, but today’s conservatives aren’t business-friendly. They’re a threat to business.
There have been rumors and hints that the Chamber may begin backing more moderate Republican candidates over extreme, anti-regulation Defund-The-EPA zealots, but I’ll believe it when I see it.
