NAWBO Congressional Endorsement Program

To help shape developments in Washington, DC, NAWBO will endorse select candidates for the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives. Candidates for state, county or local office are currently not being considered. All candidates for endorsement will be considered and voted upon by the NAWBO National Board not specific NAWBO chapters. NAWBO Chapters are welcome to refer or recommend federal candidates for endorsement to the NAWBO National Board through Joy Lutes at jlutes@nawbo.org.

Candidates will be assessed on their own history of entrepreneurism and/or their public record of support for small business owners. The selected candidates will be from both major political parties, men and women running for office across the country. What they have in common will be their commitment to small business owners.

In 2014, 17 federal candidates were selected to receive NAWBO National endorsement. Links to press releases announcing each endorsement can be found below as they are made public. Please direct any inquiries into the program to Joy Lutes at jlutes@nawbo.org.
