WASHINGTON, Oct. 18 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Associated Builders and Contractors' Political Action Committee (ABC PAC) today announced it has endorsed 253 congressional candidates for the 2010 elections – a slate including 25 running for the U.S. Senate and 228 vying for seats in the U.S. House of Representatives.

"We are proud to support all these candidates for Congress," said Michelle Seward Davis, 2010 ABC PAC chairman and chief financial officer for Joeris General Contractors, San Antonio, Texas. "We believe that each one of these pro-business individuals will be strong advocates for free enterprise and open competition."

Candidates endorsed by ABC PAC agreed to oppose project labor agreements, a special interest handout to construction labor unions; protect the voting rights of construction employees during union organizing campaigns; support legislation that would give construction companies access to the same health care options as large corporations and unions; and support small business tax relief, among other items.

"We are confident that each of these candidates is committed to cutting government spending, lowering taxes and creating jobs – a focus that our country and economy need. Families, small business owners and their employees being represented by these 253 individuals would benefit from their strong leadership," said Seward Davis.
