The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) Virginia PAC, the political action committee of the state’s leading small business advocacy organization, announced its endorsement of Thomas C. Wright, Jr., who is seeking re-election to Virginia’s 61st House District seat.

The NFIB Virginia PAC is comprised exclusively of NFIB members.

“Tommy Wright has a proven track record of supporting small businesses,” said Nicole Riley, NFIB’s state director for Virginia. “His voting record is a clear indication he is the best choice for small-business owners, their employees and their families.

“Del. Wright understands the challenges facing the commonwealth’s small businesses, and our members believe he will continue to support them by promoting sound tax policies, protecting Virginia’s sensible regulatory environment, improving workforce development opportunities, and expanding broadband access in rural communities,” Riley said. “These are all key issues to ensure a healthy economy in Virginia.”

NFIB is the leading small-business association in the nation with thousands of members in Virginia representing a cross section of the state’s economy. The endorsements come from the NFIB VA PAC, the association’s state political action committee, and are based on voting records or surveys of candidates on small business issues and member input.

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 will encourage its members to help turn out the small-business vote for NFIB VA PAC-endorsed candidates in the General Election.
