According to a report from AL.coms John Sharp, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce will not be supporting Alabama U.S. Senate special election Republican nominee Roy Moore in his bid to fill the seat formerly held by Jeff Sessions.
We have a process for non-incumbent races and plan to follow it in Alabama, Scott Reed, the senior political strategist with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, said in an email to Sharp. A candidates stated priorities and positions on economic issues have great weight with the U.S.C.C. and the Alabama business community.
The Chamber had invested hundreds of thousands of dollars in the Republican primary for Moores opponent Luther Strange and had a billboard advertising campaign promoting President Donald Trumps support of Strange in the lead-up to last months GOP primary runoff.
The group also has urged Congress and Trump in recent months to quickly pass an immigration plan that would reportedly not only allow 800,000 illegal aliens to obtain a pathway to U.S. citizenship but could also trigger a wave of chain migration.
