Chamber made

September 20th, 2012

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is out with a fourth round of advertising on behalf of former Gov. Linda Lingle’s Republican campaign for U.S. Senate.

The $311,000 ad buy, which focuses on job growth, comes after the interest group spent about $750,000 on behalf of Lingle before the August primary. Lingle is facing U.S. Rep. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, in November.

“Linda Lingle has a proven record as a bipartisan leader who will work with members of both parties to get things done and create jobs,” Rob Engstrom, the U.S. Chamber’s senior vice president and national political director, said in a statement. “She stands with Hawaii’s job creators and will support free enterprise policies that create economic growth. Her independent leadership will serve Hawaii well in the Senate.”
