RICHMOND, Va. (Sept. 2, 2020) — The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), the nation’s leading small business advocacy organization, today endorsed Nick Freitas for election to the United States House of Representatives to represent Virginia’s 7th Congressional District.
“Nick Freitas has been a strong advocate for small businesses during his time in the Virginia state Legislature,” said Nicole Riley, NFIB’s Virginia State Director. “He knows the issues our members care about and has been instrumental in pushing our state to conform its income tax to the small business tax relief found in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, which offered substantial relief to small businesses everywhere. We are confident Nick Freitas will continue to stand up for our country’s small businesses in Congress, and we are proud to endorse him today for election to Congress on behalf of our members.”
Nick Freitas is an 11-year United States Army veteran and member of the Virginia House of Delegates representing the 30th District since 2015.
“Freitas’ solid voting record with NFIB during his time in the Virginia House of Delegates speaks for itself,” said NFIB National Political Director Sharon Sussin. “We know he will continue to make supporting small businesses a top issue of his in Congress. On behalf of the small business community in Virginia and across the country, we are pleased to endorse Nick Freitas today.”
Nick Freitas’ 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 Virginia will work hard to elect Nick Freitas to Congress.
