in Uncategorized by

The National Federation of Independent Business, Florida’s leading small-business association, today announced its endorsement of Mike Weinstein for Senate District 4.

“Mike has demonstrated genuine commitment to small-business issues and fighting job-killing government intrusion; he is the only candidate in the district devoted to supporting small business in the Florida Senate,” said Bill Herrle, NFIB/Florida Executive Director. “Mike’s priorities align with those of the small-business community, and he will be an effective ally to our members in the fight to create jobs and improve the economy.”

Mike has a 100 percent NFIB voting record during his time in the House of Representatives, and continues to support many of NFIB/Florida’s priorities, including streamlining government, eliminating burdensome overregulation, reforming the broken healthcare system and tort reform.

“I’m honored by this endorsement from the National Federation of Independent Business, which supports America’s most important industry, small businesses,” said candidate Mike Weinstein.  “NFIB showed great leadership in the effort to repeal Obamacare, and I was proud to vote with them in the efforts to repeal that massive expansion of federal power.  I look forward to working with NFIB in the Florida Senate to make Florida an even better place for entrepreneurs to create jobs.”

The endorsement comes from the NFIB/Florida SAFE (Save America’s Free Enterprise) Trust, the political action committee for NFIB/Florida’s membership, and is based on candidates’ positions regarding key small-business issues including healthcare, taxes, and labor and regulatory issues.
