ASHEVILLE, N.C. (Sept. 20, 2022) – The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), the nation’s leading small business advocacy organization, endorsed Chuck Edwards for election to the United States House of Representatives to represent North Carolina’s 11th Congressional District. The endorsement was announced at a campaign event hosted at NFIB member small business Sunrise Sawmill in Asheville.
“As a small business owner himself, Chuck Edwards understands what it takes to run a small business on a day-to-day basis,” said Gregg Thompson, NFIB North Carolina State Director. “He has served in the North Carolina Senate since 2016 and has worked on legislation to provide tax and regulatory relief for small businesses statewide. Chuck Edwards understands how rampant inflation, labor scarcity, and regulatory burdens impact small businesses and has pledged to focus on these issues in Washington. We are pleased to endorse him today.”
“Chuck Edwards will be a pro-small business Member of Congress,” said Sharon Sussin, NFIB Senior National Political Director. “He recognizes the issues facing small business owners and we are confident he will be a strong advocate for them in Congress. We look forward to working with him.”
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.
