Eidshaug talked about the areas where the Chamber’s legislative agenda match up with the congressional candidate’s:
Pence is former head of the Columbus Area Chamber of Commerce and a member of the Indiana chamber, which has also endorsed him.
From his prior experience, Pence said he learned the importance of the Chamber of Commerce and in the businesses of a community.
The Republican Pence is running for the 6th Congressional District seat that his brother, Vice President Mike Pence, previously held. He faces Democrat Jeanine Lake in the November election.
