– The National Federation of Independent Business, Florida’s leading small-business association, today announced
its endorsed candidates in several Northeast Florida legislative races. The
endorsements were made by NFIB/Florida SAFE (Save America’s Free Enterprise)
Trust, which is comprised exclusively of NFIB members.

business legislature has never been more important,” said Bill Herrle, NFIB/Florida
Executive Director. “The endorsed candidates have demonstrated that they

“Small business creates two out of three jobs
for Florida’s economy, so it’s important that we have a legislature that
supports small business and supports free enterprise,” said Herrle.

The NFIB/Florida SAFE Trust endorsement is based on a candidate’s voting record,
interviews, and questionnaire regarding key small-business issues including
healthcare, taxes, tort, labor, and regulatory issues. The endorsement brings
the considerable grassroots support of more than 10,500 of Florida’s small-businesses.
