“We support the candidates who support small business”

HARRISBURG, (Sept. 17, 2018) – NFIB today announced that its Pennsylvania political action committee has endorsed candidates for state House and Senate ahead of Pennsylvania’s November General Election.

“Because they are frequently impacted by decisions state lawmakers make, it’s critical for small businesses to know who will support them in the future,” said Rebecca Oyler, NFIB’s Pennsylvania Legislative Director. “The NFIB Pennsylvania PAC has chosen to endorse these candidates because we are sure they will have the back of Pennsylvania’s entrepreneurs and small businesses, and they will vote for policies that enable small companies to expand, hire more people, and contribute to growing the state’s economy.”  

NFIB is the leading small-business association with thousands of members in Pennsylvania representing a cross-section of the state’s economy. The endorsements come from NFIB’s Pennsylvania PAC, the association’s state political action committee, and are based on positions regarding key small-business issues including taxes, health care, labor, and regulatory issues.

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 will encourage its members to help turn out the small-business vote for the candidates in the 2018 General Election.
