Washington, D.C. (July 13, 2016) – The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), the nation’s leading representative of small business owners, is endorsing Rep. Tim Huelskamp (KS-01) for re-election. Huelskamp has a strong record of supporting legislation that would help small businesses and should be returned to the U.S. House of Representatives.
“Congressman Tim Huelskamp has been a strong voice for small business and deserves to be re-elected,” said NFIB National Political Director Sharon Sussin. “In this Congress, he stood with small business owners on every critical vote scored by the NFIB so far. We want to see him back in the House of Representatives next year fighting against high taxes and oppressive regulations.”
“I am honored to have the endorsement of the NFIB, because they represent the Main Street backbone of Kansas. From retail stores to family farms, small manufacturers to service companies, small businesses are the life blood of the Kansas economy,” said Congressman Huelskamp. “That is why I have been fighting on the Small Business Committee against those who want to raise taxes and impose burdensome red tape on the very people working so hard to provide jobs in our local communities.”
Huelskamp qualified for an endorsement from the NFIB by achieving a high rating on votes scored in the current Congress. The Congressman earned 100 percent on the 13 votes NFIB has monitored so far. The list of the votes is available here.
Huelskamp’s endorsement today comes from the NFIB SAFE Trust, the organization’s political action committee. Small business owners vote in high percentages and they are influential in their communities.
