National Federation of Independent Business cites candidate’s strong support for small business-friendly initiatives
Washington, D.C. (November 29, 2016) – The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), the nation’s leading representative of small business owners, is endorsing Mike Johnson for Louisiana’s 4th Congressional District. Johnson’s commitment to issues that small business owners care about makes him an ideal candidate for Congress.
“Mike Johnson is committed to being a strong voice for Louisiana small business owners,” said NFIB National Political Director Sharon Sussin. “He understands the challenges faced by small businesses and will work to reduce taxes, eliminate red tape, and reform health care. We look forward to seeing him serve in the U.S. House.”
“During his time in the Louisiana legislature, Mike Johnson was a reliable vote for small business priorities,” said NFIB/Louisiana State Director Dawn Starns. “He stood against what could have been one of the biggest tax increases in state history. We could count on him listening to small business owners in Louisiana, and we know he will continue advocating for them in Washington.”
Johnson’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. NFIB members in Louisiana’s 4th Congressional District will work hard to send Mike Johnson to Congress.
