"This is one of the most powerful, important positions in the state..."
The NFIB Georgia PAC today endorsed Tyler Harper for state agriculture commissioner. The political action committee is comprised solely of NFIB small business members from throughout the state.
“Agriculture is one of Georgia’s largest industries,” NFIB State Director Nathan Humphrey said. “Besides regulating farming in the state, the ag commissioner oversees everything from pet breeders to grocery stores to gasoline and motor fuel.
“This is one of the most powerful, important positions in the state, which is why we need to elect a strong leader like Tyler Harper,” Humphrey said. “Tyler Harper has achieved a 100% NFIB voting record in the state, taking the small business position on everything from energy sourcing to lawsuit reform. He has shown our members that he understands the challenges facing Georgia’s job creators, which is why the NFIB Georgia PAC has chosen to endorse Tyler Harper as the state’s next commissioner of agriculture.”
Today’s endorsement is significant in a critical election year. Small business owners and their employees vote in high numbers and are known for actively recruiting friends, family members, and acquaintances to vote. The PAC’s support is based on candidates’ positions and records on small-business issues.
