The leading small business association endorses Jaime because she is a “true champion for the small business community in Washington”
Vancouver, WA – Today, Jaime Herrera Beutler welcomed the news that her campaign has been endorsed by the National Federation of Independent Business, the nation’s leading voice for small businesses.
Jaime has consistently championed solutions to support small businesses throughout her service in Congress. She helped successfully lower taxes for craft breweries, restaurants and countless other Southwest Washington small businesses in 2017. During the COVID pandemic, Jaime helped champion the creation of the Paycheck Protection Program which provided small businesses with forgivable loans to continue paying their employees and has helped protect 90,000 jobs in Southwest Washington.
“Congresswoman Herrera Beutler has proven to be a dedicated small business supporter during her time in Congress,” said Patrick Connor, NFIB’s Washington State Director. “She has shown a deep understanding of the issues small business owners in Washington care about, such as regulatory relief and making small business tax relief permanent. We are proud to endorse Congresswoman Herrera Beutler today, and we look forward to continuing to work with her in the U.S. House of Representatives.”
“We are pleased to endorse Congresswoman Herrera Beutler today for re-election,” said NFIB National Political Director Sharon Sussin. “She is a true champion for the small business community in Washington and across the country, and we are confident she will continue to represent small businesses well in Congress.”
“Small businesses are the heart of Southwest Washington’s economy, so I’m incredibly honored to receive this distinction as the best candidate to protect them during this challenging time and support their comeback once we emerge from this health crisis,” said Jaime.
