COLUMBIA — The National Federation of Independent Business, South Carolina’s leading small-business association, has endorsed Representative Mike Forrester in the 34th district race.
The endorsement was made by NFIB/South Carolina SAFE (Save America’s Free Enterprise) Trust, which is comprised exclusively of NFIB members.
“Representative Forrester clearly understands the challenges facing South Carolina’s small, family businesses and is the clear choice in this year’s election,” said Ben Homeyer, state director of NFIB/South Carolina.
“Our members believe Representative Forrester will take a fiscally responsible approach to managing state government and support legislation that helps our small businesses grow and create jobs and puts the state back on the pathway to success.”
The NFIB/South Carolina SAFE Trust’s endorsement is critical to the candidate’s 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. NFIB has pledged it will activate its grassroots network on behalf of the campaign. NFIB’s political support is based on the candidates’ positions and records on small business issues.
