NFIB supports the candidates in both federal and state elections who support small business. How does our endorsement process work?
Our endorsements are overseen by our federal and state political action committees. Both the federal and state PACs are called the SAFE (Save America's Free Enterprise) Trust. The PACs are comprised exclusively of NFIB members.
SAFE Trust endorsements are based solely on each candidate's position and record on key small-business issues.
All congressional and gubernatorial endorsements are determined by NFIB’s federal PAC board of directors, which is comprised of NFIB members who serve on the NFIB national board of directors. Legislative endorsements and endorsements for offices other than governor are made by the state PAC boards.
NFIB's endorsements are limited to the candidates' positions on small-business issues. Our PACs do not consider their positions on social issues or party affiliation.
