TwinWest Chamber Endorses Paulsen over Bonoff

Eden Prairie, Mn – The TwinWest Chamber of Commerce PAC endorsed U.S. Rep. Erik Paulsen (MN-03) for re-election today. The Star Tribune has referred to the TwinWest Chamber as a “hugely influential” group in the Third District race.
Paulsen has now received the endorsement of the TwinWest Chamber of Commerce, U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the National Federation of Independent Business, dealing a major blow to Bonoff.
“Small business is the engine of our economy, and I’m proud to have TwinWest’s strong support” said Rep. Paulsen. “Like my bill to repeal the job-killing medical device tax, I will continue to work across the aisle to save Minnesota jobs.”
 
During last month’s debate hosted by the TwinWest Chamber of Commerce, Bonoff denied voting for a $1 billion tax increase in 2009 she actually did vote for, doubled-down on her vote to bring Obamacare and its crippling premium increases to Minnesota, and tried to claim she may not support Nancy Pelosi for Speaker just a few days before attending a fundraiser at her house.
TwinWest’s endorsement comes on the heels of Paulsen receiving the endorsements of all of Minnesota’s major law enforcement organizations, including the Minnesota Police and Peace Officers Association, the Fraternal Order of Police and the Police Officers Federation of Minneapolis for his work to combat human trafficking and help find missing children.
