Chamber of Commerce won't rebuke members of Congress who voted to overturn 2020 election

“There is a meaningful difference between a member of Congress who voted no on the question of certifying the votes of certain states and those who engaged and continue to engage in repeated actions that undermine the legitimacy of our elections and institutions,” wrote Ashlee Rich Stephenson, a senior political strategist at the chamber.

She later drew a distinction between members of Congress who voted to overturn the election and those whose actions might have been more overt.

“Casting a vote is different than organizing the rally of January 6 or continuing to push debunked conspiracy theories,” Stephenson said. “We will take into consideration actions such as these and future conduct that erodes our Democratic institutions.”
