U.S. Chamber launches tax reform ads in battleground states

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is jumping into the midterm election, launching television ads in key battleground states including Arizona. Congresswoman Martha McSally (R), recently endorsed by the U.S. Chamber, is facing Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema (D) in what most political pundits have deemed the closest U.S. Senate race in the nation.

“The USCC had endorsed candidates in over 235 races across America and engaged in a sustained voter education program to ensure citizens know exactly where the candidates stand on the issues that matter most,” said Rob Engstrom, a senior vice president with the U.S. Chamber. “We believe the local impacts of federal policy will help shape the composition of the Congress moving forward.”  

The television ad thanks Congresswoman McSally for her support of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the most comprehensive tax reform package in more than 30 years, and features Karrin Taylor Robson, a prominent local leader who serves on the Arizona Board of Regents.

“Arizona’s economy is growing at a faster pace than I’ve seen in many, many years,” Taylor says in the ad. “People have confidence, they are investing in their businesses, and they are investing in their families. In large part, that’s attributed to the actions of leaders like Congresswoman McSally- she voted to make the tax cuts permanent. She understands the need to continue to lower taxes on Arizona families and Arizona businesses.”

The U.S. Chamber was a vocal advocate for the tax package, rallying chambers and businesses from across the nation to reach out to their Congressional delegation in support of the reform.

Congresswoman Sinema voted against the tax reform package last year, citing concerns about the federal deficit.

“Tax reform has been a centerpiece of driving economic growth and jobs and the results are overwhelming and tangible,” Engstrom said. “Voters in Arizona and in other critical states will be able to hold their elected officials accountable for supporting or opposing this important piece of legislation that’s making a real difference.”
