The National Federation of Independent Business, West Virginia’s and the nation’s leading small-business association, today announced the endorsement of David McKinley in the 1st District House primary.
“We support the candidates who support small business, and Representative McKinley clearly supports small business, having earned an outstanding 89 percent NFIB voting record this Congress," said Gil White, state director of NFIB/West Virginia.
"Day in and day out, Representative McKinley has supported Main Street West Virginia by consistently voting for legislation that will help our small businesses grow and create jobs," White said. “We need to send him back to Washington to continue fighting for West Virginia’s job creators, its small businesses."
NFIB has 1,700 dues-paying members in West Virginia representing a cross-section of the state's economy. The endorsements come from NFIB’s SAFE (Save America’s Free Enterprise) Trust, the association’s political action committee, and are based on positions regarding key small-business issues including health care, taxes, and labor and regulatory issues.
Small-business owners and their employees vote in high numbers and are known for actively recruiting friends, family members and acquaintances to go to the polls. NFIB will encourage its members to help turn out the small-business vote for Rep. David McKinley in the May 13 primary and again in November.
