Even as the Obama administration makes unsubstantiated claims about "foreign money" in an attempt to demonize the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Rep. Jim Matheson and other business-friendly Democrats are receiving campaign support from the Chamber, and say they're happy to get it. Reports ABC News:
In some corners of Democratic politics the uproar coming from senior party officials about how the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is paying for its massive 2010 election advertising campaign is falling on deaf ears.
That's because the Chamber, which has already spent millions on ads boosting Republican Congressional candidates across the country, has also thrown its support behind 10 business-friendly Democrats. In districts from Utah to Virginia, the Chamber has gone on the air with television ads for these candidates and they don't seem to be complaining.
