NFIB endorses Tuberville over Jones in Alabama Senate race
Republican U.S. senatorial nominee Tommy Tuberville on Wednesday was endorsed by the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), America’s largest small business advocacy organization.
The endorsement specifically comes from NFIB FedPAC, the organization’s federal political action committee. The PAC is funded by member donations above membership dues, and decisions made by NFIB FedPAC are managed by a member-driven grassroots evaluation process.
“We are confident Tommy Tuberville will be a strong supporter of Alabama’s small businesses,” stated Rosemary Elebash, NFIB’s Alabama state director.
“He is committed to rolling back onerous small business regulations and making it easier for hardworking small business owners to run their businesses,” she continued. “During his campaign, Tuberville has made it a priority to understand the challenges our members are facing, especially during these challenging times. On behalf of Alabama small business owners, we are pleased to endorse Tommy Tuberville for election to the U.S. Senate.”
Tuberville is set to face incumbent U.S. Senator Doug Jones (D-AL) on November 3.
NFIB national political director Sharon Sussin advised, “We know Tommy Tuberville will make small businesses a top priority of his in Congress. That’s why we are proud to endorse him today. We look forward to working with Tommy Tuberville in the U.S. Senate.”
This important endorsement came the same week that the Alabama Retail Association announced its backing of Tuberville.
“Independent small businesses are the backbone of the American economy, so I’m proud to carry the endorsement of the NFIB,” Tuberville said in a statement to Yellowhammer News.
“Liberal Democrats like Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and Doug Jones believe in higher taxes, government regulations, economic shutdowns, and other anti-business policies that will prevent us from quickly rebuilding history’s greatest economy. With the support of groups like NFIB, I look forward to serving in Washington and helping President Trump make America great again,” he concluded.
