Endorses Delegate Barbara Comstock (VA-34)

Comstock Gains Another Pro-Business Endorsement 

McLean, VA -- The National Federation of Independent Business, Virginia’s leading small-business association, has endorsed Delegate Barbara Comstock in the race for the 34th House of Delegates district.

The endorsement was made by NFIB/Virginia SAFE (Save America’s Free Enterprise) Trust, which is comprised exclusively of NFIB members.  NFIB has 6,000 small-business members throughout the Commonwealth.

Nicole Riley, state director of NFIB/Virginia, issued the following statement:

“Delegate Comstock understands the challenges facing Virginia’s small, family businesses and is the clear choice in House District 34.  "What this means is that Delegate Comstock has stood up for Virginia's job creators time and again on important issues such as tax relief, health care reform and the right of employees to cast secret ballots in union organization elections.


“We believe Delegate Comstock will continue to take a fiscally responsible approach to managing state government and support legislation that helps our small businesses grow and create jobs and puts the Commonwealth back on the pathway to success.”

Delegate Barbara Comstock issued the following statement:

“I am pleased to have the endorsement of the National Federation of Independent Business.  Over the past two years I have worked with my colleagues in the General Assembly to make job creation our top priority and Virginia is now the top state for business.  This endorsement joins the strong endorsements from the Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce’s BizPAC, the Northern Virginia Technology Council’s TechPAC, Northern Virginia Realtors, Associated Builders and Contractors, the Affordable Shelter PAC and a bipartisan group of business leaders across the district and the state.”

NFIB’s endorsement is critical to a candidate’s 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. NFIB has pledged it will activate its grassroots network on behalf of the campaign. NFIB’s political support is based on the candidates’ positions and voting records on small business issues. 


 NFIB is the nation’s leading small business association, with offices in Washington, D.C. and all 50 state capitals. Founded in 1943 as a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization, NFIB gives small- and independent-business owners a voice in shaping the public policy issues that affect their business. NFIB’s powerful network of grassroots activists sends its views directly to state and federal lawmakers through our unique member-only ballot, thus playing a critical role in supporting America’s free enterprise system. NFIB’s mission is to promote and protect the right of our members to own, operate and grow their businesses. More information about NFIB is available online at www.NFIB.com/newsroom.
