“The U.S. Chamber is the preeminent voice for America’s small businesses. I am honored to receive their Spirit of Enterprise Award and I look forward to working with the Chamber to advance pro-growth policies that will encourage small businesses to create new jobs and ultimately grow our economy,” said Crawford.
