Washington, DC (August 22, 2016) – The National Federation of
Independent Business (NFIB)
, the nation’s leading advocate for small business
owners, today endorsed Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO)
for re-election.

“Senator Blunt has a strong pro-small business
record and deserves to be re-elected,” said NFIB CEO and President Juanita
Duggan
. “On every critical vote watched by the NFIB in this Congress, the
Senator has voted with small business owners. He is working to keep taxes low
and keep red tape and regulations from strangling growth in Missouri. We want
to see him back in the Senate next year.”

Blunt qualified for an endorsement from the
NFIB by achieving a high rating on votes scored in the current Congress. The
Senator has voted with NFIB on all six votes monitored by the NFIB this
Congress. The list of scored votes is available here.

“Missouri small businesses appreciate that
Senator Blunt stands up for them,” said NFIB/Missouri
State Director Brad Jones
. “He has voted to keep the federal government
from controlling practically every waterway in the state through the Waters of
the United States rule. He is making sure that we have affordable energy and
that small business owners have certainty about their federal taxes. NFIB
members are going to work hard to keep him in the Senate.”

Blunt’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.
