'Dave Yost has worked to make Ohio a fair place to operate a small business'
The NFIB Ohio PAC today endorsed Dave Yost for a second term as state attorney general. The political action committee is comprised solely of NFIB members.
“Dave Yost has shown us that he clearly understands the importance of maintaining a stable legal environment that allows small businesses to grow and create jobs and help drive our economy forward,” said NFIB Ohio Executive Director Roger Geiger.
“Dave Yost has worked to make Ohio a fair place to operate a small business, and the entrepreneurs of our state appreciate that kind of environment,” Geiger said. “We need Dave Yost to continue to represent the state on significant economic issues before Ohio’s courts. His office is responsible for consumer protection services that significantly impact our members, and we appreciate him joining NFIB last year in our successful legal challenge of the Biden administration’s overreaching COVID-19 vaccine mandate.”
Yost said, “I am honored to have earned the endorsement of NFIB Ohio PAC, and the trust and support of Ohio’s small business community. Ohio workers and small business owners are the backbone of our state’s economy. As Ohio Attorney General, I am proud to support them by providing a predictable and stable legal environment where they can thrive. I look forward to partnering with them for another four years.”
In determining the endorsement, the NFIB Ohio PAC thoroughly vetted both candidates through a member-driven process, including surveying members and personnel. Today’s endorsement puts the considerable grassroots support of the state’s small businesses behind the governor’s campaign. Small-business owners and their employees vote in high numbers and are known for recruiting friends, family members, and acquaintances to vote. NFIB will encourage its Ohio members to help turn out the powerful small-business voting bloc on Election Day.
