DES MOINES, Iowa (July 6, 2020) — The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), the nation’s leading small business advocacy organization, endorsed David Young today for election to the United States House of Representatives to represent Iowa’s 3rd Congressional District.
“As a former Congressman for Iowa’s 3rd Congressional District from 2015-2019, David Young knows the challenges small businesses in our state are facing,” said Matt Everson, NFIB’s Iowa State Director. “He achieved a strong voting record during his time in the U.S. House of Representatives and was instrumental in helping pass important small business legislation, such as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, which granted significant tax relief for small businesses. On behalf of small businesses in Iowa’s 3rd Congressional District, I am proud to endorse David Young today for election to the U.S. House of Representatives.”
David Young is a seventh generation Iowan and served Iowa’s 3rd Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives from 2015-2019. Young received a 91% NFIB voting record on small business issues during the 115th Congress and a 100% NFIB voting record during the 114th Congress. He was an NFIB Guardian of Small Business Award recipient for both of his terms in Congress.
“David Young was a strong supporter of small businesses during his time in Congress,” said NFIB National Political Director Sharon Sussin. “He has a deep understanding of the issues that small businesses in Iowa’s 3rd Congressional District are concerned about, and we are confident he will continue to be a champion for small businesses in Iowa and across the country in the U.S. House of Representatives.”
David Young’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 Iowa will work hard to elect David Young to Congress.
