NFIB candidate-endorsement list includes lone Democrat

Sen. Leah Landrum Taylor was the lone Democrat among 44 Arizona legislative candidates to receive the endorsement of the National Federation of Independent Business – Arizona.

The rest of the list, comprised of all Republicans, includes seven senators and 26 representatives seeking reelection, and eight House candidates and two Senate candidates. No Libertarians, Greens or independents secured endorsements.

Incumbents earned the endorsement based on their voting records on 15 bills supported or opposed by NFIB during the 2009-10 regular sessions. Non-incumbent candidates were selected based on their answers to a questionnaire.

The endorsements were issued by NFIB/Arizona Save America’s Free Enterprise (SAFE) Trust, the organization’s political action committee. The PAC may issue more endorsements after the Aug. 24 primary.

NFIB has offices in Washington, D.C. and all 50 state capitals. Founded in 1943 as a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization, the organization acts as a voice for small- and independent-business owners in shaping the public policy issues that affect their business.
