Since the inception of the National Association of Manufacturers Political Action Committee (NAM-PAC) in January of 2013, we are proud to report that the PAC events have raised over $1 million to support members of Congress and candidates who have established themselves as proven champions in supporting a pro-manufacturing agenda. Thus far the NAM-PAC has held 62 events for members and candidates on both sides of the aisle, including House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI-1), House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA-23) and House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-MD-05), Senators Rob Portman (R-OH) and Chris Coons (D-DE), and Representatives Pat Tiberi (R-OH-12) and Ron Kind (D-WI-3)—just to name a few.
We are very proud of reaching this tremendous milestone. We are also extremely grateful to the NAM member company political action committees which have joined us in supporting these campaigns.
Proudly, the PAC has a strong history of supporting incumbent manufacturing champions facing difficult primary and general election campaigns, as well as challengers who have committed to pursuing a NAM friendly agenda once elected to Congress. The NAM-PAC is committed to supporting candidates who stand firm on their promises to create a policy environment in the U.S. that encourages growth and innovation.
For the remaining six months of this critical 2016 election cycle, the NAM-PAC will look to build upon our already successful efforts to assist campaigns of members of Congress who consistently support the manufacturing industry. In order to create high-paying manufacturing jobs and grow our economy, it is imperative that manufacturers stand together to elect candidates who are willing to fight for manufacturing interests in Congress.
