The Juneau Chamber of Commerce issued a statement Friday distancing itself from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s political advertisements in Alaska.
The statement says:
“The Juneau Chamber of Commerce is independent from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and has no affiliation with its political ads. We do not endorse candidates, nor do we contribute to the U.S. Chamber’s election related activities.”
It was signed by Juneau Chamber President Max Mertz.
The U.S. Chamber has been running television attack ads in Alaska targeting incumbent Democratic Sen. Mark Begich and supporting Republican candidate Dan Sullivan.
The Juneau Chamber’s message follows a similar recent statement by the Anchorage Chamber of Commerce.
