SALEM, Ore., April 23, 2024—In its first round of endorsements in the 2024 election year, NFIB OR PAC, the political action committee for Oregon’s leading small business advocacy association, today announced its pre-Primary Election choices of three state senators and 22 state representatives for reelection to the Oregon State Legislature.

“NFIB is the nation’s leading small business advocacy organization,” said NFIB Oregon State Director Anthony Smith in a letter to the 25 endorsed incumbents. “In Oregon, thousands of NFIB member-businesses employ tens of thousands of Oregonians. Small businesses represent an overwhelming majority of the total businesses in Oregon and employ over half of the state’s private sector workforce.”

By receiving the endorsement of the NFIB Oregon Political Action Committee, these state lawmakers have demonstrated their willingness and ability to fight for small business in Salem. Their efforts, including their actual votes on small business issues, show they understand the importance of small business to our state’s economy.
