National Federation of Independent Business backs Ron DeSantis for re-election

Florida’s 6th Congressional District Republican Rep. Ron DeSantis got another key endorsement for re-election Monday, as the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) fell in behind the incumbent, citing his “strong record of supporting legislation that would help small businesses.”

“Congressman DeSantis has been a strong voice for small business and deserves to be re-elected,” said NFIB National Political Director Sharon Sussin. “He stood with small business owners on every critical vote the NFIB has scored in this Congress. We need him back in the U.S. House next year continuing to promote legislation that reduces the tax and regulatory burdens on small businesses in Florida.”

“At a time in which millions of Americans have dropped out of the workforce, debt is mounting, and the economy is sluggish, policies aiming to facilitate economic growth are as essential as they are overdue,” said Congressman DeSantis. “Small business growth and vitality are essential to strengthening the economy. We need to liberate small businesses from an expanding bureaucracy, excessive red tape, and a complex tax code that all make it more difficult to succeed. That’s why I’m proud to have the support of NFIB, America’s leading small business association.”

DeSantis has been a fundraising juggernaut, bringing in almost half a million dollars during the second quarter of 2016, with momentum not even slowing down as he’s moved from a run for Senate to a run for re-election.
