The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the powerful pro-business lobbying group, said Tuesday it will halt political contributions to certain lawmakers following the deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol last week.
“There are some members that by their actions will have forfeited the support of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Period, full stop,” Neil Bradley, chief policy officer at the Chamber, said in a press conference.
The Chamber’s political action committee (PAC) is typically a reliable resource for Republicans.
Bradley said he would not name lawmakers whose support will be pulled. He was questioned specifically on if the group would pull support from Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.), the first senator to throw his support behind objecting to the electoral vote count.
