Congressman Has a Strong Small Business Record in U.S. House
Washington, DC (June 2, 2016) – The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), the nation’s leading advocate for small business owners, today endorsed Rep. Joe Heck (NV-03) for election to the U.S. Senate. The endorsement came at a campaign event in Henderson, NV.
“Small business owners want to see Dr. Joe Heck serving in the Senate next year,” said NFIB CEO and President Juanita Duggan. “As someone who ran a small business, he understands the struggle to deal with high taxes and excessive regulations. In his years in the House, he has voted with NFIB every time. He’s the strongest candidate in the field and will be a reliable vote for sensible economic policies.”
The list of votes scored by NFIB in the present Congress is available here.
“Earning the endorsement of NFIB means a lot to me,” said Dr. Heck. “As someone who owned and operated a small business, I know the risks required to create jobs and the challenges faced to make payroll. That includes going without a paycheck myself in order to ensure my employees received theirs. I also know what it’s like to deal with disastrous regulations from Washington that prevent business growth and keep wages down. That’s why I focus on supporting and introducing legislation to foster an economy where private sector companies hire and expand, so all Nevadans have opportunities for good-paying, full-time jobs.”
“In his time in the House of Representatives, Dr. Heck has been rock solid in his support for NFIB and Nevada small businesses,” said NFIB/Nevada State Director Randi Thompson. “He has served his community in Congress, served our country in the military, and now we want him to serve our state in the U.S. Senate.”
Heck’s 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.
