Hurt Endorsed by Nation's Leading Small Business Association

September 14, 2010

The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), America’s leading small business association, announced its full support and endorsement Tuesday of Robert Hurt for election to the U.S. House of Representatives from Virginia’s 5th Congressional District.

The endorsement comes from NFIB’s Save America’s Free Enterprise Trust, the association’s political action committee, and is based candidates’ positions on key small business issues including healthcare, taxes and labor and regulatory issues.

“Robert Hurt is a small business owner and NFIB member, which makes this endorsement especially meaningful,” said Lisa Goeas, NFIB’s vice president for political operations. “Our small business membership knows that Robert is one of their own, which means they are even more likely to actively support his candidacy by encouraging their employees, friends and family members to turn out and vote for him on election day.”

There are over 150,000 small business employers in Virginia.

"He has a voting record to show he is able to translate his own perspective as a business owner into policies that let small business do what it does best, which is grow the economy and create jobs,” said Goeas.
