Frazier Announces Two Key Endorsements at Economic Roundtable

Hispanic Contractors of Colorado, U.S. Chamber of Commerce back Frazier

Aurora, CO – Ryan Frazier, candidate for the 7th Congressional District, today announced two key endorsements in his bid to become the next Congressman from the 7th Congressional District of Colorado. Frazier announced the endorsements of the Hispanic Contractors of Colorado (HCC) and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce at the economic roundtable he hosted with Finance Professor Sanjai Bhagat, and businessman Rich Sokol.

“I’m honored to receive these crucial endorsements from small business advocacy groups,” Frazier said. “It’s time for new leadership, and a new way forward, in Congress.”

“It is evident…that you recognize and appreciate many of the issues that are of importance to the HCC membership,” Helga Grunerud, Executive Director of HCC, wrote in the endorsement letter. “For that reason, and numerous others, we – as an association – are excited to stand behind you as you campaign for a leadership position on our issues.”

“On behalf of the world’s largest business federation representing the interests of more than three million businesses and organizations of every size, sector, and region, I am pleased to inform you that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Board of Directors has endorsed your [Ryan Frazier’s] candidacy for the U.S. House of Representatives,” Thomas J. Donohue, President and CEO of the Chamber, wrote in a letter. “We will encourage the business community to vigorously support your candidacy.”

“Our campaign continues to gain momentum,” Frazier concluded. “Congress needs new voices who will advocate for small businesses all across our great nation.”
