NASHVILLE, September 25, 2018—The NFIB Tennessee Political Action Committee has endorsed State Representative Dennis Powers (R-Jacksboro) in the 36th District House race. The PAC is comprised exclusively of NFIB members.
“Representative Powers has clearly demonstrated he is a strong supporter of free enterprise and will stand with small business in the 111th General Assembly,” NFIB State Director Jim Brown said. “He is committed to promoting a positive business environment in Tennessee and truly understands the critical role small business plays in a strong economy.”
“I am honored to receive this endorsement from Tennessee’s leading small business association,” said Representative Powers. “Our small businesses are the backbone of our local economy, and the fact that Tennessee was recently named one of the national leaders in small business friendliness drives home their importance. I will continue to support initiatives that allow these organizations to thrive because this will lead to additional job creation, and enable more of our families to achieve their version of the American Dream.”
The NFIB Tennessee PAC’s endorsement is important to the Powers 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. The PAC’s support is based on the candidates’ positions and records on small business issues.
Dennis Powers serves as Vice-Chairman of the House Republican Caucus. He is also a member of the House Business & Utilities Committee, as well as the House Insurance & Banking Committee and Subcommittee.
