Congressman Gets High Marks from the National Federation of Independent Business
Washington, D.C. (August 16, 2016) – The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), the nation’s leading representative of small business owners, is endorsing Rep. Trent Franks (AZ-08) for re-election. Franks has a strong record of supporting legislation that would help small businesses and should be returned to the U.S. House of Representatives.
“Congressman Franks has been a strong voice for small business and deserves to be re-elected,” said NFIB National Political Director Sharon Sussin. “On every vote critical to small business in this Congress, he has stood with NFIB. Small business owners in Arizona need him back in the U.S. House next year continuing to fight against oppressive regulations and high taxes.”
“I am honored to receive the endorsement and support of the NFIB. Small businesses are the backbone of our economy,” said Rep. Franks. “I will continue the important work in Congress of defending the free market principles that made America the nation she is and ensure the crushing overregulation that exists at every level is fought and pushed back against.”
Franks qualified for an endorsement from the NFIB by achieving a high rating on votes scored in the current Congress. The Congressman earned 100 percent on the 13 votes NFIB has monitored so far. The list of the votes is available here.
Franks’ endorsement today comes from the NFIB SAFE Trust, the organization’s political action committee. Small business owners vote in high percentages and they are influential in their communities.
