The NFIB Arkansas PAC today endorsed Sarah Huckabee Sanders for governor. The political action committee is comprised solely of NFIB members from across the state.
“Our members support the candidates who support small business, and Sarah Huckabee Sanders is clearly on the side of small business,” NFIB State Director Sylvester Smith said. “Sarah Huckabee Sanders’s love of Arkansas is matched only by her love of public service. Our members believe she will be a strong advocate for small businesses and do everything she can to maintain an environment that allows our small businesses to grow.”
“She supports efforts to end Arkansas’s income tax and address the state’s labor shortage by investing more in education and workforce development,” Smith said. “She’s also committed to reducing healthcare costs for small businesses and expanding broadband in rural parts of the state.
“Sarah Huckabee Sanders is clearly the only choice for Arkansas’ small businesses, which is why I’m proud to announce this endorsement,” Smith said.
“I’m honored to receive the endorsement of the NFIB,” Sanders said. “As governor, I will begin to responsibly phase out the state income tax and foster an environment for Arkansas’ businesses to grow so they can create thousands of new, high-paying, sustainable jobs for our workers. The NFIB knows that I have the bold plan to take Arkansas to the top.”
Today’s endorsement puts the considerable grassroots support of the state’s small businesses behind the Sanders campaign. Small business owners and their employees vote in high numbers and are known for recruiting friends, family members, and acquaintances to vote. NFIB will encourage its Arkansas members to help turn out the powerful small business voting bloc on Election Day.
