Fairfax Chamber Neutral in U.S. Senate Race

In a statement issued yesterday, Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce president Jim Corcoran remarked, “There are a lot of important federal elections this fall, and many issues impacting the business community in Northern Virginia are being debated by the candidates.

As a long-standing policy, the Fairfax Chamber does not make endorsements for candidates in federal elections. The Northern Virginia business community looks forward to a healthy dialogue between candidates on issues critical to our region.” The non-endorsement policy reflected that also expressed by the Virginia State Chamber in February. The statements were circulated yesterday following the Washington, D.C.-based U.S. Chamber endorsement of Republican George Allen in the Virginia U.S. Senate race over his opponent, Democrat Tim Kaine.
