The NFIB Oklahoma PAC today announced it has endorsed Matt Pinnell for a second term as lieutenant governor. The political action committee is comprised solely of NFIB small business members from throughout the state.
“Matt Pinnell has been an entrepreneur himself and truly understands the challenges facing Oklahoma’s small business community,” NFIB State Director Jerrod Shouse said. “Matt recognizes that small business is the engine that drives Oklahoma’s economy. He supports efforts to reduce taxes, eliminate bureaucratic red tape and improve workforce training to help address the labor shortage and help Oklahoma’s economic recovery.
“Matt Pinnell is the clear choice for lieutenant governor,” Shouse said.
Today’s endorsement is significant in an important election year. Small business owners and their employees vote in high numbers and are known for actively recruiting friends, family members, and acquaintances to vote. The PAC’s support is based on candidates’ positions and records on small-business issues.
