NFIB, Tennessee’s leading small-business association, today said it has endorsed candidates in 20 state legislative primary races. The endorsements were made by the NFIB Tennessee Political Action Committee, which is comprised exclusively of NFIB members.

State primaries are Thursday, Aug. 2, with early voting beginning July 13 and ending July 28. The NFIB Tennessee PAC plans to announce all statewide endorsements for the Nov. 6 general election later this summer.

“NFIB endorses candidates who strongly support small businesses and who are dedicated to protecting free enterprise,” said Jim Brown, Tennessee state director, noting seven of the 20 endorsed primary candidates are NFIB members. “These candidates have a proven track record of standing up for small businesses and promoting a positive regulatory, labor and tax environment for Tennessee’s job creators.”

The NFIB Tennessee 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.
