The endorsement was made by NFIB/Georgia SAFE (Save America’s Free Enterprise) Trust, which is comprised exclusively of NFIB members.
“Eddie Lumsden understands the challenges facing Georgia’s small, family businesses and is the clear choice in 12th state House District,” said Kyle Jackson, state director of NFIB/Georgia. “As a small business owner, nobody is better suited to fight for Georgia’s job creators than Eddie.”
“We believe Lumsden will take a fiscally responsible approach to managing state government and support legislation that helps our small businesses grow and create jobs and puts the state back on the pathway to success.”
“I am proud to have the endorsement of the NFIB. Small businesses are the backbone of our country, and if we allow small businesses to grow, we can get our economy moving again in Georgia. As the only candidate in this race who has owned a small business and created jobs, I will go to Atlanta to be a voice for the small business owners of District 12,” stated Lumsden.
The NFIB/Georgia SAFE Trust’s endorsement is critical to the Lumsden 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 records on small business issues.
