WASHINGTON, Nov. 14, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The following is a statement by United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce President & CEO, Javier Palomarez:

"As a longtime friend of the USHCC, Senator John Cornyn has consistently advocated on behalf of our membership and America's small business community. He has demonstrated a clear understanding of how entrepreneurs, not only in Texas but across the nation, are fueling economic growth. By collaborating on policy solutions that affect our constituency, Hispanic businesses – our nation's fastest-growing entrepreneurial segment – have started new ventures at a rate 3 times the national average, while spurring job growth and innovation across a broad range of industries. We are confident that Senator Cornyn will continue serving as a champion for American business, and we look forward to working with him in the 114th Congress in his new role as Senate Majority Whip."
