Jackson, Miss. (NFIB) – The NFIB Mississippi PAC has endorsed Delbert Hosemann for lieutenant governor. The political action committee is comprised exclusively of NFIB members in Mississippi, and its endorsement is based on a survey of NFIB members throughout the state.
“Small business drives Mississippi’s economy, which is why we need leaders like Delbert Hosemann,” said Ron Aldridge, NFIB’s state director for Mississippi.
“Delbert Hosemann is the clear choice for Mississippi’s small businesses,” Aldridge said. “As secretary of state, Delbert Hosemann has shown our small business members that he’s a problem solver who holds true to his commitments. His innovative efforts provided access to highly valuable market and business data throughout our state that gives every Mississippian desiring to create, operate and grow their own business a greater opportunity for success.
“Throughout his career, Delbert Hosemann has sought and listened to the voice of Mississippi’s small businesses,” Aldridge said. “He successfully led the legislative efforts to cut the red tape for creating a business.
“Delbert Hosemann is an effective leader who gets results with the most efficient use of resources. He understands the challenges small businesses face, and he knows that when small business thrives, our communities do, too.
“This year’s election is critical to Mississippi’s future, which is why I am proud to announce the NFIB Mississippi PAC’s support for Delbert Hosemann as lieutenant governor.”
Today’s endorsement puts the considerable grassroots support of the state’s small businesses behind Hosemann’s campaign. Small business owners and their employees vote in high numbers and are known for recruiting friends, family members and acquaintances to vote.
