USHCC Endorses Hillary Clinton for Democratic Nomination

Secretary Hillary Clinton has a Proven Record of Delivering Results for America's Small Business Community and has Proposed Bold Policy Plans to Help Our Hispanic Business Community, Along With the American People, Thrive and Prosper

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - April 28, 2016) - The United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (USHCC) is proud to endorse Secretary Hillary Clinton as the Democratic nominee for President of the United States. Secretary Clinton's views on issues important to America's small business community are simply far more qualifying than the empty rhetoric and lackluster record of Senator Bernie Sanders.

Secretary Clinton has stood with the USHCC and the Hispanic community at-large for decades. For more than 40 years, Secretary Clinton has fought to ensure that those who are willing to work hard in America have the opportunity to get ahead and stay ahead. From registering Hispanic voters in south Texas as a college student -- to helping raise education standards in one of the poorest states in America as First Lady of Arkansas -- to strengthening diplomatic and commercial ties around the globe for American small business owners as Secretary of State, Clinton has always stood by our community.

Secretary Clinton also recognizes that small businesses are the engine of American economic prosperity. As the daughter of an entrepreneur, Clinton has personally witnessed the formidable challenges, risks and opportunities our business men and women face each day. She earned our endorsement because, unlike her primary Democratic opponent, Secretary Clinton has demonstrated the ability to enact a robust and pragmatic policy agenda that will allow the Hispanic small business community to thrive and prosper.

There is so much at stake in this election and our country cannot afford to have those who would divide our nation and prey on the fears of the American people as our President. By way of example, Donald Trump's rhetoric toward women, immigrants, the disabled, Muslims, and the Hispanic community not only divides our country, but sends a clear message that Hispanic voters won't forget: he does not stand with our community.

For these reasons and more, we proudly endorse Secretary Hillary Clinton as the Democratic Presidential nominee.
