2014–The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), the nation’s leading
small-business association, has endorsed David Jolly in the 13th

The endorsement was made
by NFIB’s Political Action Committee, SAFE (Save America’s Free Enterprise) Trust,
which is comprised exclusively of NFIB members.

businesses and is the clear choice in the special election to represent the 13th
District in Congress,” said Bill Herrle,
executive director of NFIB/Florida.
as a congressional aide for NFIB Guardian Award winner Bill Young for over 20
years, Jolly began several Florida-based small businesses and dealt with the same
challenges facing our members. As a result, he founded the Florida Federal
Contractors Association and worked to stop project-labor agreements (PLAs) so
that small businesses could have equal opportunity to bid for jobs, Herrle said.”
“In addition to his strong
small business background and advocacy, Jolly supports the repeal of the
burdensome Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and passage of a Balanced
Budget Amendment,” said NFIB

to create the kinds of jobs Florida needs.”

members and acquaintances to go to the polls.
