According to the National Federation of Independent Businesses, it’s Jason Chaffetz:
“Jason Chaffetz is the proven pro-small business candidate in this race,” said Lisa Goeas, NFIB’s vice president, political. “A small business owner himself, Chaffetz is well-versed on the issues facing our members. In addition, his policy positions have indicated his support of many of NFIB’s priority issues including healthcare and tax reform, as well as opposing labor initiatives such as card check that would hamper an entrepreneur’s ability to run a business without union interference.”
If Sen. Obama is elected, Utah’s 3rd District needs a Congressman who knows that taxing most small business in a time of economic downturn is a horrible idea.
If Sen. McCain is elected, Utah’s 3rd District needs a Congressman who knows that burdensome regulations against “greed” go against the free market principles that made this country great.

Andy Harris picked up two major endorsements today:
Maryland First Congressional Candidate Andy Harris picked up a major endorsement Tuesday morning in Salisbury. He is being backed by the National Federation of Independent Businesses and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
NFIB officials say Harris understands the needs of small businesses. Harris says those small businesses are the foundation of the American economy.
Congratulations, Dr. Harris! The combination of a Governor Martin O’Malley and a President Barack Obama would be a disaster for small business owners across the Eastern Shore.

Pete Olson received a major endorsement yesterday from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce:
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce agrees with Rep. Nick Lampson on energy policy and gave the Democratic congressman an award in April for being “an effective ally to the business community.”
Republican challenger Pete Olson is diametrically opposed to the business federation on what to do about the 12 million illegal immigrants in the United States.
But today the Washington-based coalition of millions of businesses will endorse Olson for election on Nov. 4 to the 22nd District U.S. House seat.
This endorsement should carry a lot of weight with businesses in the metro Houston district who may have been more inclined to support an incumbent in this election cycle. It will also reassure all conservatives who are pro-immigration enforcement that Pete Olson is getting this endorsement in spite of his hard-line stance on immigration, not because of it. (The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is pro-business, but also pro-amnesty.)
So congratulations to Pete Olson and his campaign for securing this major endorsement while staying true to a conservative position on immigration.
