Resources for Candidates

NFIB’s political action committees endorse candidates who will be a voice for small business. We are focused on protecting incumbents who are proven allies of small business, electing pro-small business candidates in open seats, and challenging anti-small business incumbents.

If you’re a small business ally running for federal office and are interested in NFIB Fed PAC support, contact a member of NFIB’s political team at [email protected] or 800-552-6342. 

If you’re a candidate running for state office and interested in NFIB’s support, please visit your NFIB state page to contact the state office.
