NASHVILLE (June 29, 2022) – The NFIB Tennessee PAC, the political action committee of the state’s leading small business advocacy organization, has endorsed Representative John Gillespie in the House District 97 race. The NFIB Tennessee PAC is comprised exclusively of NFIB members.

“Our members support the candidates who demonstrate they will support small business consistently, and John Gillespie has shown us that he understands the significant challenges today for our state’s entrepreneurs,” said Jim Brown, the National Federation of Independent Business’ state director for Tennessee. “Rep. Gillespie is committed to creating and maintaining a positive environment for small businesses in the district and across our state.”

“I’m grateful to earn the support of small business owners across our state,” remarked Gillespie. “Small businesses are the backbone of our economy. Therefore, I’ve worked to cut red tape and create a favorable climate for small business growth in Tennessee,” said Gillespie.

The NFIB Tennessee PAC endorsement is critical to candidates’ campaigns. 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 Tennessee PAC’s political support is based on the candidates’ positions and records on small business issues.
