The National Federation of Independent Business, West Virginia’s leading small-business association, has endorsed candidates in four state Senate races and three House contests.
The endorsements come from the NFIB West Virginia SAFE (Save America’s Free Enterprise) Trust, which is comprised exclusively of NFIB members.
“These candidates clearly understand the crucial role small businesses play in our economy,” said Gil White, state director of NFIB. “Each of these candidates has earned a 100-percent voting record with NFIB, and we believe they will continue to help West Virginia’s small businesses grow and create jobs.”
In the Senate, the NFIB SAFE Trust has endorsed:
• Greg Bosco, District 11
• Mitch Carmichael, District 4
• Chris Walters, District 8
• Ryan Weld, District 1
In the House:
• Carol Miller, District 16
• Eric Nelson, District 35
• Brad White, District 36
The NFIB West Virginia SAFE Trust’s endorsement is critical to each candidate’s campaign. Small business owners and their employees vote in high numbers and are known for actively recruiting friends, family members, and acquaintances to go to the polls. NFIB has pledged it will activate its grassroots network on behalf of the campaign. NFIB’s political support is based on the candidates’ positions and records on small business issues.
