Historic endorsement by the U.S. Chamber is the 1st ever of an independent candidate.

Babinec is an “independent reformer with a strong background of creating jobs.”

Binghamton, New York Martin Babinec the Reform, Independent and Upstate Jobs Party candidate for Congress today received the endorsement of the US Chamber of Commerce. The US Chamber of Commerce is the world’s largest business federation representing the interests of more than three million businesses and organizations of every size, sector and region.
“Voters in the 22nd Congressional District have the choice between three candidates, two of which are running on alleged business acumen matched with extreme views. Martin Babinec, on the other hand, offers voters a third option as an independent reformer with a strong background of creating jobs. The U.S. Chamber is proud to stand with the local business community to endorse Martin Babinec,” said Eileen Braden, Vice President, Political Affairs and Federation Relations, U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
This historic endorsement by the US Chamber is the first ever of an independent candidate.  
“We can reverse the 30-year decline of the Upstate economy and keep our families together, but it is going to take a fresh approach and new ideas that focus on investing in our communities. I deeply appreciate the Chamber’s trust and confidence in my ability to be a partner in Washington for a stronger and more competitive business climate,” said Babinec.
Babinec, a successful entrepreneur and founder of the not-for-profit Upstate Venture Connect (UVC), is a proponent of a new approach to job development that focuses on our home grown job creators. UVC has built a network of over 12,000 supporters who collectively have helped drive a fresh entrepreneurial culture in the region that connects new ventures with the resources they need – from access to capital, mentoring, customers and talent.


Through the establishment of Upstate Jobs Party, Babinec is seeking to break the duopoly of the political parties whose policies have for too long failed working families of the state. As the only competitive third party candidate for Congress in America, Babinec is reshaping the political landscape in New York.
“For too long, New Yorker’s have been prisoners of a corrupt political and economic development system that keeps taxes high and wastes taxpayer dollars rewarding donors and allies on phony deals. On Election Day voters will have a real choice to effect change,” said Babinec.
