BOISE, Idaho (Oct. 1, 2020) — The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), the nation’s leading small business advocacy organization, endorsed Senator Jim Risch for re-election to the United States Senate today.
“Senator Risch is a true champion for Idaho small businesses,” said Suzanne Budge, NFIB’s Idaho State Director. “As the former Chairman of the United States Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship, he has a deep understanding of the challenges facing our members, especially during these difficult times. Senator Risch was instrumental in securing historic tax relief for small businesses and has stood up to protect small business owners’ privacy during his time in Congress. He has always made himself available to our members and taken the time to sit down with Idaho’s small business owners both in the state and in Washington, D.C. We are proud to endorse Senator Risch today for re-election.”
“On behalf of our members, we are pleased to endorse Senator Risch for re-election,” said NFIB National Political Director Sharon Sussin. “He has always been a strong supporter of small businesses, and we are confident that he will remain an advocate for small business owners everywhere in the Senate.”
Jim Risch’s endorsement today comes from NFIB FedPAC, the organization’s political action committee. NFIB FedPAC is funded by NFIB member donations above membership dues. Decisions made by NFIB FedPAC are managed by a member-driven grassroots evaluation process. Small business owners are influential in their communities and NFIB members in Idaho will work hard to re-elect Jim Risch.
