National Federation of Independent Business cites candidate’s strong support for small business-friendly initiatives

Washington, D.C. (September 19, 2016) – The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), the nation’s leading representative of small business owners, is endorsing Mike Gallagher for Wisconsin’s 8th Congressional District. Gallagher’s commitment to issues that small business owners care about makes him an ideal candidate for Congress.  

“Mike Gallagher is the right choice for small business owners in Wisconsin,” said NFIB National Political Director Sharon Sussin. “As someone who worked for a family business, he knows firsthand about the struggles small businesses have with federal policies. We know that he would work to reduce regulatory and tax burdens, freeing businesses to grow and prosper.”

“Wisconsin small business owners need someone to fight for sensible policies in Congress,” said NFIB/Wisconsin State Director Bill Smith. “Small businesses are struggling to wade through red tape and pay high tax bills. Mike Gallagher would be their voice in Washington.”

Gallagher’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.  NFIB members in Wisconsin’s 8th Congressional District will work hard to send Mike Gallagher to Congress.
