NFIB Indiana PAC Endorses 61 Candidates for Seats in State Legislature

Date: September 01, 2022

The NFIB Indiana PAC today endorsed 15 candidates for state Senate and 46 candidates for seats in the Indiana House. The political action committee is comprised solely of NFIB members.

“There’s a lot riding on the outcome of this year’s election,” NFIB State Director Natalie Robinson said. “Small businesses are dealing with the worst inflation in decades, the challenge of finding enough qualified workers, and persistent problems with the supply chain. It’s essential that we choose candidates who will support Indiana’s job creators and do everything they can to create an environment that allows small businesses to grow and create jobs.”

The NFIB Indiana PAC’s endorsements are based on candidates’ records and positions on small business issues.

This 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.
