Washington, D.C. (October 25, 2016) – The National Federation of
Independent Business (NFIB)
, the nation’s leading representative of small
business owners, is endorsing Rep. Darin
LaHood (IL-18)
for re-election. LaHood has a strong record of supporting
legislation that would help small businesses and should be returned to the U.S.
House of Representatives.

“Even in his short time in Congress,
Congressman Darin LaHood has been a defender of Illinois small business owners,”
said NFIB/Illinois State Director Kim Maisch. “He stood with small
business on every critical vote that came before him. He voted against oppressive
regulations and for tax relief. He deserves to be re-elected so that he can
continue the good work.”

“As small businesses and families
continue to struggle to make ends meet all across central and west central Illinois,
it is critical that we support small businesses, the backbone of our
communities,” said LaHood. “For small business to thrive in Illinois
we must work to cut burdensome regulations, make health care more affordable,
and reform our broken tax code. I am proud to stand with small businesses and
hard-working families across our district; it is a great honor to have the
support of the NFIB.” 

LaHood 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 six votes NFIB monitored since LaHood won
his seat. The list of the votes is available here.

LaHood’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.
