HELENA, Mont. (Sept. 30, 2022) – The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), the nation’s leading small business advocacy organization, endorsed Ryan Zinke for election to the United States House of Representatives to represent Montana’s newly-created 1st Congressional District.
“As former United States Secretary of the Interior, former U.S. representative, and former member of the Montana state Senate, Ryan Zinke is exceptionally qualified to represent Montana’s small businesses in the U.S. Congress,” said Ronda Wiggers, NFIB Montana State Director. “As Secretary of Interior, he implemented a pro-growth and pro-small business agenda, helping small farmers and ranchers with policies such as reducing unnecessary federal land protections. During his tenure in Congress, he earned a 100% NFIB voting record and was a strong advocate for lower taxes and limited federal government regulations. Montana’s small businesses will benefit with Ryan Zinke back in Congress and we have no doubt he will continue to be a reliable voice for our members.”
“Ryan Zinke has a clear understanding of the issues facing small businesses and will be a strong ally for them in Congress,” said Sharon Sussin, NFIB Senior National Political Director. “He is a proven champion for small businesses, and we are proud to endorse him today.”
The endorsement is issued from NFIB FedPAC, NFIB’s political action committee. NFIB FedPAC is funded by voluntary contributions by NFIB members over and above their membership dues. Decisions made by the NFIB FedPAC are managed by a member-driven grassroots evaluation.
