NFIB Launches $650,000 Campaign Supporting Small Business Candidates in Key U.S. Senate Races
Radio Ads Highlight Rep. Joe Heck (NV), Rep. Todd Young (IN), and Sen. Pat Toomey (PA) as Champions of Small Business
WASHINGTON, D.C. (OCTOBER 31, 2016) – The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) SAFE Trust launched a $650,000 radio advertising campaign today supporting three U.S. Senate candidates: Rep. Joe Heck (NV), Rep. Todd Young (IN), and Sen. Pat Toomey (PA). The radio ads will run across Nevada, Indiana, and Pennsylvania through Election Day.
“Congressman Heck, Congressman Young, and Senator Toomey fought relentlessly against crushing regulations that hold Main Street back, and they continue to push for pro-growth solutions to boost small businesses and create jobs,” said NFIB President and CEO Juanita Duggan. “This election is an important opportunity to elect a pro-small business majority in Congress, but the small business community must do its part at the polls.”
The radio ads highlight the candidates as champions of Main Street and urge small businesses and their employees to head to the polls on Election Day to show their support.
NFIB endorsed Rep. Joe Heck, Rep. Todd Young, and Sen. Pat Toomey based on their outstanding voting records on key small business issues. Heck and Young have earned 100-percent scores on the NFIB Voting Record during this Congress. Senator Toomey’s NFIB Voting Record is 83 percent during this Congress.
