The chamber of commerce tried to find common ground. It ended up pissing off both parties.

It should be good times for the American Chamber of Commerce. The nation’s largest business lobby has long disagreements with President Donald Trump as well as ideological affinities with Republicans in the Senate. The results of the 2020 elections are not final. But all signs point to the kind of outcome they should be happy with: a divided government, with Joe Biden in the White House and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (RK.Y.) leading the upper house.

And yet the chamber finds itself in perhaps the most precarious political position of all time. The group has angered its longtime right-wing allies by backing a number of House Democrats during the 2020 cycle. And while most of the incumbent Democrats backed by the group appear to be heading for re-election, leaders party say they feel no allegiance or gratitude to the chamber for what they describe as surface support.

Republicans, on the other hand, did not view this support as superficial at all. They viewed the actions of the chamber this cycle as an act of treason.
