Independent Business (NFIB), the nation’s leading representative of small
business owners, is endorsing Mike
Johnson for Louisiana’s 4th
Congressional District. Johnson’s commitment to issues that small business
owners care about makes him an ideal candidate for Congress.
“Mike Johnson is committed to being a strong

Mike Johnson was a reliable vote for small business priorities,” said NFIB/Louisiana State Director Dawn Starns.

Johnson’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. NFIB members in Louisiana’s
4th Congressional District will work hard to send Mike
Johnson to Congress.
