Emmer gets support of small-business federation

The National Federation of Independent Business, which represents about 12,000 small businesses in Minnesota, has endorsed Republican Tom Emmer in the governor’s race.

“Tom Emmer has been a good friend of ours in the Legislature and would make a terrific governor for small business,” said Mike Hickey, Minnesota state director for NFIB.

Hickey said Emmer’s voting record on the group’s small-business issues was 100 percent in the 2009-10 session and 91 percent over his career.

And he said Emmer “strongly shares the goals of Governor Pawlenty about making Minnesota a more competitive state when it comes to job creation and trying to restrain the explosive growth of Minnesota state government.”
