Release: Small Business Endorses Kennedy for U.S. Senate
BATON ROUGE, LA —The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) today endorsed John Kennedy in Louisiana’s U.S. Senate race.
The NFIB is the country’s leading advocate for small-business owners. It supports candidates and policies that will help small businesses grow, leading to new jobs and a stronger economy.
“Small business owners in Louisiana trust John Kennedy to be their voice in the U.S. Senate,” said NFIB President and CEO Juanita Duggan. “Small businesses need relief from high taxes and excessive government regulation. Kennedy’s views on the key issues align with our members’ priorities, and he will be a strong advocate for small business owners in the United States Senate.”
“As State Treasurer, John Kennedy made sure that the public funds were wisely managed,” said NFIB Louisiana State Director Dawn Starns. “That’s the sensibility that small business owners want to see brought to Washington. Kennedy participated in our candidate’s forum this summer and demonstrated a great understanding of what small businesses need to succeed. We hope to see him serving in the U.S. Senate next year.”
Kennedy said, “I appreciate the NFIB and its many small-business owners for their endorsement. Too many of our businesses are struggling to grow because of high taxes and burdensome regulations. We need Senators who understand that supporting small businesses leads to jobs and growth, and I will vote to create opportunities that will lead to a healthier economy and more work for the people.”
The NFIB joins a growing list of organizations supporting Louisiana values that have endorsed Kennedy. He has also received the support of the Louisiana Sheriffs’ Association, the National Rifle Association, the National Right to Life and the American Conservative Union.
