AUSTIN, Texas (Aug. 26, 2020) — The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), the nation’s leading small business advocacy organization, endorsed Wesley Hunt for election to the United States House of Representatives today to represent Texas’ 7th Congressional District.
“Wesley Hunt is the best candidate to represent small businesses in Texas’ 7th Congressional District,” said Annie Spilman, NFIB’s Texas State Director. “Not only did Captain Hunt, a former commissioned Army Captain who served overseas, graduate from West Point and go on to study Business, Public Administration, and Industrial and Labor Relations, he carved out the time to be an active member of his community. Wesley Hunt has a proven commitment to his country and a strong understanding of what promotes a strong economic climate where small businesses can continue to grow. On behalf of Texas’ small businesses, we are proud to endorse him today.”
“We are confident that Wesley Hunt will be a strong pro-small business Member of Congress,” said NFIB National Political Director Sharon Sussin. “He is committed to standing up for the issues our members in Texas’ 7th Congressional District care about, such as creating jobs, flood mitigation, and healthcare. We are pleased to endorse him today for election to the United States House of Representatives.”
Wesley Hunt’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 Texas will work hard to elect Wesley Hunt to Congress.
