The Chamber of Commerce has endorsed Democrats in the 2020 and 2022 election cycles.
After Jan. 6, they said they would not support lawmakers who talked about voter fraud in the 2020 election.
McCarthy’s grudge against the chamber began after it backed 23 House Democrats in the 2020 election cycle if Republicans failed to regain the majority. The chamber has reportedly endorsed 23 House Republican candidates and four Democrats during the 2022 election campaign.

McCarthy told Breitbart News last year before the recent November election that “the chamber left the party a long time ago” and criticized the organization for supporting Democrats. “I just assume they’ll have as much impact in the future as they do now — none,” McCarthy said at the time.
Axios reports that McCarthy has personally discussed the idea of replacing current president and CEO Suzanne Clark with chamber of commerce board members and state leaders. The chamber’s CEO was recently approved for a new five-year term, according to a memo sent to the board by board chair Mark Ordan. The memorandum was sent to board members on Monday.

House GOP leaders just gave them a huge blow.
Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy and House Majority Leader Steve Scalise are refusing to meet with the US Chamber of Commerce.
“The priorities of the US Chamber of Commerce are not aligned with the priorities of House Republicans or the interests of their own members, and until they do, they should not expect a meeting with Speaker McCarthy,” McCarthy’s chief spokesman said.
Both House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and House Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-LA) have declined to meet with the US Chamber of Commerce over Democrats’ endorsement of the organization.
In a statement to CNBC on Monday, McCarthy’s chief spokesman, Mark Bedner, said the agency’s priorities no longer align with the Republican Party.
“The priorities of the US Chamber of Commerce are not aligned with the priorities of House Republicans or the interests of their own members, and as long as they are, they should not expect a meeting with Speaker McCarthy,” Bedner said.
“Washington has moved radically away from the pro-business philosophy of most local chambers across America,” Fine said. “Unless the chamber returns to its traditional pro-business roots, they shouldn’t expect any engagement with Majority Leader Scalise’s office.”
The GOP is finally starting to take on the establishment!
