ChamberPAC endorses candidates for the Pennsylvania General Assembly, and some statewide and judicial offices, that have a track record of or are receptive to supporting the state’s job creators. In determining ChamberPAC endorsements, several factors are taken into consideration – the integrity and character of the candidate; demonstrated interest in and/or proven track record of supporting business issues; and the opposition he/she faces in an upcoming election.
There were a number of important elected positions on the ballot for the 2018 General Election – governor, all of Pennsylvania’s Congressional delegation, one U.S. Senate seat, all 203 seats in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, as well as 25 of the 50 state Senate seats. After careful evaluation of the candidates, ChamberPAC endorsed Scott Wagner for governor; along with 107 candidates for the state House and 18 candidates for the state Senate.
In the end, 109 of the 125 legislative candidates endorsed by ChamberPAC won election, with one race still undecided (please see the tabs below for a complete list of the ChamberPAC endorsed legislative candidates that were elected). We believe that these candidates will prioritize the impact of legislation on the state’s broad-based business community and we look forward to working with them in the upcoming 2019-20 legislative session.
