SPRINGFIELD August 6th, 2020 – The NFIB Illinois PAC, the political action committee of the state’s leading small business advocacy organization, has endorsed Eric M. Wallace in the District 40 State Senate race. The political action committee is comprised exclusively of NFIB members.
“Wallace understands the challenges facing Illinois’s small businesses and will do everything he can to create and maintain an environment where small businesses can grow and create jobs,” NFIB State Director Mark Grant said.
“I am incredibly thankful for the endorsement of the NFIB. Small independent businesses are the lifeblood for economic empowerment in the 40th district and the state of Illinois as a whole. If elected to the State Senate, I will do my best to ensure that the State Senate helps create and maintain an environment for small businesses to thrive and grow to create more jobs and opportunities for everyone.” Said Wallace.
The NFIB Illinois 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 Illinois PAC’s political support is based on the candidates’ positions and records on small business issues.
