Hickory, N.C. - 10th District Republican Nominee Congressman Patrick McHenry today earned the endorsement of the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB).
“Your election is not only critical to the small business owners in your district, but also to protecting free enterprise across America,” NFIB Vice President Linda Goeas said in a letter to McHenry. “On behalf of all NFIB members, our nation’s job creators, we look forward to standing with you this November as you continue to do big things for small business.”
“I’m honored to have the support of the National Federation for Independent Business,” said McHenry. “I will continue to advocate for small businesses across Western North Carolina. Small businesses are the backbone of the Tenth Congressional District and America.”
The National Federation of Independent Business is the leading small business association representing small and independent businesses. A nonprofit, nonpartisan organization founded in 1943, NFIB represents the consensus views of its members in Washington and all 50 state capitals.
