“The National Federation of Independent Business is the voice of small business in Atlanta, and these candidates listen to what our members have to say,” Raynor said. “They support improved access to affordable healthcare and believe in better fiscal responsibility, a sensible workers’ compensation system and putting an end to excessive regulation that hurts the ability of small businesses to grow and create jobs.”

NFIB’s endorsement is important to the candidates’ campaigns. Small business owners and their employees vote in large numbers and recruit friends and family members to go to the polls. NFIB/Georgia has pledged to activate its grassroots network on behalf of these candidates. NFIB’s political support is based on the candidates’ positions and records on small business issues. 

NFIB is the nation’s leading small business association, with offices in Washington, D.C. and all 50 state capitals. Founded in 1943 as a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization, NFIB gives small- and independent-business owners a voice in shaping the public policy issues that affect their business. NFIB’s powerful network of grassroots activists sends its views directly to state and federal lawmakers through our unique member-only ballot, thus playing a critical role in supporting America’s free enterprise system. NFIB’s mission is to promote and protect the right of our members to own, operate and grow their businesses. More information about NFIB is available online at www.NFIB.com/newsroom.
