"Not one positive thing to say" about U.S. Chamber

The Greater Hudson Chamber of Commerce in Nashua, N.H., has left the U.S. Chamber.

Why? Because the New Hampshire chamber doesn't want to have anything to do with the U.S. Chamber's ads attacking Democratic candidates.

Jerry Mayotte, executive vice president of the New Hampshire chamber, had a few choice words about the U.S. Chamber.

“We didn’t like the fact that the U.S. Chamber was supporting particular candidates. We don’t think it’s good business practice to do so...As far as I’m concerned, I could not find one positive thing to say about being involved in the U.S. Chamber."
