NFIB/TN endorses 28 candidates in state primary races.

Who Stands for Small Business?

If you’re wondering how to cast a vote in the state elections this election year, NFIB/Tennessee Save America’s Free Enterprise Trust—made up exclusively of NFIB members—is here to help. The group recently made 28 endorsements for the state legislative primary races. Thirteen of the endorsed candidates are NFIB members themselves who know first-hand the importance of fighting for lower taxes and fewer regulations.

“NFIB stands with candidates who support small businesses and who are dedicated to protecting free enterprise,” Jim Brown, NFIB/TN state director, said. “These candidates have a proven track record of defending small businesses and promoting a positive environment for small business.”

Tennessee’s primary elections will take place on Thursday, August 4. Early voting begins July 15 and ends July 30.

NFIB/Tennessee SAFE Trust will make another round of endorsements for general races later this summer.
