NASHVILLE, September 5, 2018—The NFIB Tennessee Political Action Committee has endorsed Senator Kerry Roberts in the Senate District 25 race. The PAC is comprised exclusively of NFIB members.
“Kerry Roberts has demonstrated clearly he is a strong supporter of free enterprise and will stand with small business in the 111th General Assembly,” NFIB State Director Jim Brown said. “Kerry is committed to promoting a positive business environment in Tennessee and truly understands the critical role small business plays in a strong economy.”
"It's a privilege to represent so many small business owners in Cheatham, Dickson, Hickman, Humphreys and Robertson counties - and I'm honored to receive this endorsement," said Kerry Roberts. "As a 30+ year small business owner, I know first-hand the frustration of dealing with government bureaucracy and endless red-tape. As a state senator, I've focused on cutting unnecessary regulations and we're seeing the results: incredible growth in Tennessee's small business community."
The NFIB Tennessee PAC’s endorsement is important to Senator Roberts’ campaign. Small-business owners and their employees vote in high numbers and are known for actively recruiting friends, family members and acquaintances to go to the polls. The PAC’s support is based on the candidates’ positions and records on small business issues.
