NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Sept. 14, 2020) — The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), the nation’s leading small business advocacy organization, today endorsed Bill Hagerty for election to the United States Senate.
“Bill Hagerty’s experience in both the private and public sectors gives him a unique background as a candidate,” said Jim Brown, NFIB’s Tennessee State Director. “He saw our state not only recover from the Great Recession but grow tremendously in this last decade – and he had an important role in its growth. We know Bill Hagerty will be a strong advocate for Tennessee’s small business community on issues they care about, such as regulatory reform and making small business tax relief permanent. We are proud to endorse him today for election to the United States Senate.”
“I am honored to have the endorsement of the NFIB,” said Bill Hagerty. “Now more than ever, small businesses need leaders who understand the importance of reducing government overhead and regulatory red-tape in a manner that creates an environment that supports small business growth. As Tennessee’s former chief economic leader and a businessman, myself, I understand what it takes to stimulate economies and help small businesses, which are the engines of growth and prosperity in America. In the U.S. Senate, I will be a strong advocate of Tennessee’s small businesses – working to reduce taxes and unnecessary regulatory burdens to ensure they are always supported.”
“Bill Hagerty has a true understanding of the challenges our members are facing,” said NFIB National Political Director Sharon Sussin. “We have no doubt that he will be an excellent champion for them in the Senate, and we are pleased to endorse him.”
Bill Hagerty’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 Tennessee will work hard to elect Bill Hagerty to Congress.
