82 Kansas Legislative Candidates Earn Small Business Endorsement

Date: August 31, 2022

The NFIB Kansas PAC today endorsed 82 candidates for seats in the Kansas Legislature. The political action committee, which is comprised solely of NFIB members, endorsed 1 state Senate candidate and 81 House candidates.

“These candidates are deeply committed to protecting small businesses from burdensome taxes and overreaching regulations,” NFIB State Director Dan Murray said. “Each of these candidates has shown us they understand the challenges facing Kansas’s job creators and will do everything they can to create an environment where small businesses can continue to grow and create jobs.”

The general election is on Tuesday, Nov. 8. Advance in-person voting begins Wednesday, Oct. 19, and ends Monday, Nov. 7.

The NFIB Kansas PAC’s endorsement is important to these campaigns. Small business owners and their employees vote in high numbers and are known for actively recruiting friends, family members and acquaintances to go to the polls. NFIB’s political support is based on the candidates’ positions and records on key small-business issues.
