NFIB’s political support is based on the candidates’ positions and records on key small-business issues. 

Statehouse candidates Ben Harrison, left, and Mack Butler, right.

The NFIB Alabama PAC said today it has added two names to its list of candidates endorsed for seats in the State Legislature. The political action committee endorsed Ben Harrison in District 2 and former state Rep. Mack Butler in District 28.

“It’s essential that we elect candidates who understand the vital role small business plays in the state’s economy,” NFIB State Director Rosemary Elebashsaid. “Ben Harrison and Mack Butler clearly understand the challenges facing Main Street businesses, and we believe they will do everything they can to create and maintain an environment that enables small businesses to grow and create jobs.”

The NFIB Alabama PAC’s endorsement is important to these campaigns. Small business owners and their employees vote in large numbers and are known for actively recruiting friends, family members, and acquaintances to go to the polls. NFIB’s political support is based on the candidates’ positions and records on key small-business issues. 

For almost 80 years, the National Federation of Independent Business has been the voice of small business, advocating on behalf of America’s small and independent business owners, both in Washington, D.C., and in all 50 state capitals. NFIB is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, and member-driven association. Since our founding in 1943, NFIB has been exclusively dedicated to small and independent businesses and remains so today. For more information, please visit

The candidates pledge to increase availability of mental health services, expand youth mental health services and improve crisis response.


The endorsements put the considerable grassroots support of the state's small businesses behind the campaigns.


Whether increases in voter registration, particularly among women, and rising polling numbers for Democrats affect Alabama remains to be seen.


Johnny Cochran said he is hoping to find common ground with voters who typically vote Republican on small government and fiscal conservatism.
