Georgia's Primary Election is Tuesday, May 24

Date: May 18, 2022

The NFIB Georgia PAC also endorsed 24 candidates for General Assembly

It’s vital that small business owners, employees, and their families vote in the May 24 primary election.

Soaring inflation, surging fuel prices, supply chain disruptions, and a lack of qualified job applicants are making it harder for Georgia’s small businesses to fully rebound from the economic slowdown caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. We need to support the candidates who will support small businesses and enable them to grow and create jobs.

Earlier this month, the NFIB Georgia PAC endorsed:

■ Brian Kemp for a second term as governor. Read more here.
■ Chris Carr for a second term as state attorney general. Read more here.
■ John King for a second term as insurance commissioner. Read more here.

“Each of these candidates has shown us they truly understand the challenges facing Georgia’s small businesses and will do everything they can to ensure that small, independent businesses can continue to grow and create jobs,” NFIB State Director Nathan Humphrey said.

In addition, the NFIB Georgia PAC endorsed 24 candidates for seats in the General Assembly. “It’s essential that we support the candidates committed to maintaining Georgia’s status as the No. 1 state for small business,” Humphrey said.
