Rob Engstrom talked about the Chamber of Commerce’s role in the 2016 election campaigns. The Chamber was not involved in the presidential race, but was involved in congressional races in an effort to ensure a business-friendly Congress. It had spent $23.3 million on at least nine Senate races and six House races as of October 6, 2016, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, in support of Republicans or against Democrats. Its spending was heaviest in the Ohio and Pennsylvania senatorial races, with Nevada, New Hampshire, and Florida not far behind. Among the issues that matter to the Chamber were immigration, trade, taxes, and opposition to a minimum wage hike. After the interview the reporters discussed Mr. Engstrom’s responses with the host. close
