Small business endorses candidates for Florida Senate, House
NFIB Florida PAC announces 17 endorsements in Senate races, 59 endorsements in House races

TALLAHASSEE, July 30, 2018 – NFIB, Florida’s leading small business association, today announced its state legislative endorsements for the 2018 election cycle. The endorsements were made by the NFIB Florida PAC, which is comprised exclusively of NFIB members. The NFIB Florida PAC is making endorsements in 17 Senate races and 59 House races.

“NFIB is proud to endorse candidates whose priorities align with those of the small business community,” said Bill Herrle, NFIB’s executive director in Florida. “The candidates receiving NFIB’s endorsement have a proven track record of supporting small-business issues, and have committed to working with NFIB to help Florida maintain its pro-small-business climate.”

The NFIB Florida PAC’s endorsement is important to these campaigns. 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 these campaigns. NFIB’s political support is based on the candidates’ positions and records on small-business issues.
