TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - - The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is backing Congressman Allen Boyd in his campaign for reelection. The Chamber is a nonpartisan business group that backs more Republicans than Democrats, but they went with Boyd saying he’s proven himself business friendly. Boyd says the Chamber has been a good watchdog in Washington for Florida’s small business owners.
“The US Chamber understands that this country’s businesses need an educated and healthy workforce to turn to,' Boyd said. "And so as I watch the chamber over the 22 years that I have been in legislative service I have seen them continuously work to that end.”
Boyd narrowly won his primary battle against state Senator Al Lawson. He now faces Republican nominee Steve Southerland in the congressional district two election.
