Washington, DC (October 7, 2016) – The National Federation of
Independent Business (NFIB)
, the nation’s leading advocate for small business
owners, today endorsed Sen. Kelly Ayotte
for re-election.

“Kelly Ayotte is a strong defender of New
Hampshire small businesses,” said NFIB CEO and President Juanita Duggan.
“In her first term, she has worked to provide small businesses regulatory
relief and voted to create a permanent tax provision for small business
investment. We know there’s much more she would do to help small business if
given the opportunity to serve again. We hope to see her back in the Senate
next year.”

“Helping my husband launch his small
landscaping business taught me a lot about what it takes to get a small

and workers in the Senate,” said Ayotte. “I’m grateful to have the
support of NFIB and I look forward to continuing our work together to reduce
burdensome regulations, lower taxes, reduce health care costs, and create more
opportunities for good-paying jobs in New Hampshire.” 

Ayotte qualified for an endorsement from the
NFIB by achieving a high rating on votes scored in the current Congress. The
list of scored votes is available here.

“We are fortunate in New Hampshire to have a
leader like Senator Ayotte, who is a small business owner with her husband,

Kelly in the U.S. Senate, New Hampshire’s small business owners know they have
a voice working for them.  She knows the small business community in the
Granite State, and they know her. They trust her to look out for their concerns
in Washington.”

Ayotte’s endorsement today comes from
