What an election night it was for small business!

On the state level, NFIB/Florida’s endorsed candidates enjoyed huge victories, prevailing in 77 of 81 races, with one race outstanding pending a mandatory manual recount (House District 118 in Miami, where NFIB-endorsed David Rivera is facing Robert Asencio). 

Thanks to your support, the NFIB SAFE Trust PAC helped push these candidates across the finish line. It was more important than ever that we elected pro-business candidates the state legislature, and we look forward to working with lawmakers to advance the small business agenda, and perhaps most importantly in 2017, get the workers’ comp system back on track.

Here is the rundown of NFIB/Florida SAFE Trust supported candidates:
