AUGUSTA, Maine (Sept. 10, 2020) — The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), the nation’s leading small business advocacy organization, today endorsed Dale Crafts for election to the United States House of Representatives to represent Maine’s 2nd Congressional District.
“During Crafts’ eight years as a legislator, he earned a 100% NFIB voting record, voting with small businesses on 25 key vote issues,” said David Clough, NFIB’s Maine State Director. “His unique background as a small business owner combined with his impressive legislative record make him a solid small business candidate. We are confident that he will continue to champion issues in Congress that are important to the family paychecks and community vitality our members provide. We are proud to endorse Dale Crafts today on behalf of small businesses in Maine’s 2nd Congressional District.”
Crafts is an NFIB member and former member of the Maine House of Representatives. Since 1984, he has founded and currently operates several companies across multiple industries. During his final term in the state legislature, Crafts earned a 100% NFIB voting record. He was also awarded multiple NFIB Guardian of Small Business awards during his tenure.
“Crafts has a long background of small business and legislative achievements,” said NFIB National Political Director Sharon Sussin. “He has a deep understanding of what it takes to operate a small business and what small business owners need in order to succeed. We know he will be a strong ally for our members in Congress because he is one of them.”
Dale Crafts’ 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 Maine will work hard to elect Dale Crafts to Congress.
