Rep. Mike McIntyre has won the backing of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, a business federation with more than 3 million members.
The Democratic candidate for Congress from N.C. District 7 got the business federation's support because of his "consistent pro-business record."
“At no other time in our nation’s history has it been more critical that members of Congress provide leadership that protects and advances the interests of the business community," said Thomas J. Donahue, the group's president and CEO, in an endorsement letter.
McIntyre has represented the district since 1997, and he said he is honored to have the group's endorsement. He opposes Republican state Sen. David Rouzer in his re-election bid.
