Washington, D.C. (August 29, 2016) – The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), the nation’s leading representative of small business owners, is endorsing Rep. Rod Blum (IA-01) for re-election. Blum has a strong record of supporting legislation that would help small businesses and should be returned to the U.S. House of Representatives.

“Congressman Blum stood up for small business in his first term in the U.S. House and deserves to be re-elected,” said NFIB National Political Director Sharon Sussin. “As an NFIB member himself, he knows the obstacles that the federal government throws in front of small business. He was a leader in passing permanent small business tax expensing last year and stood with small business owners on every critical vote watched by NFIB. We hope to see him back in Congress next year.”

Blum qualified for an endorsement from the NFIB by achieving a high rating on votes scored in the current Congress. The Congressman earned 100 percent on the 13 votes NFIB has monitored so far. The list of the votes is available here.

Blum’s endorsement today comes from the NFIB SAFE Trust, the organization’s political action committee.  Small business owners vote in high percentages and they are influential in their communities.
