More than Two Dozen NFIB Members Are Running for Office Across the Country

Date: October 18, 2018

More than two-dozen NFIB members in at least 14 states will be on the ballot this November for Congress and governor, as they run in pivotal midterm races to protect pro-small business priorities.

At present, there are 29 current NFIB members serving in Congress, along with thousands of small business owners in state legislatures and statewide office across the country.

For decades, NFIB has represented small business owners across the country and advocated for small business interests. NFIB members running for office know the ins and outs of running a small business and have demonstrated a proven record of leadership.

“Good small business policy starts with electing good small business candidates like these candidates,” says NFIB’s National Political Director Sharon Sussin. “They know the issues that are important to our members because they also live them day in and day out.”
