Wall Lake, Iowa – Congressman Steve King was endorsed by the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) Save America’s Free Enterprise (SAFE) Trust.
“As a founder of a small business who now represents multitudes of others, I appreciate this endorsement which reflects my commitment to removing burdens and providing opportunities for the lead job creators of our economy,” King stated.
In their endorsement, NFIB SAFE Trust wrote, “Our members in your district appreciate very much your consistent support on their key issues. Therefore, NFIB regards your reelection as critical to the small businesses in your district, and we look forward to working with you in the future on regulatory reform, tax relief, and other initiatives to improve the small business climate and create jobs.”
King enjoys the support of Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey, Senator Chuck Grassley, Senator Joni Ernst, Lieutenant Governor Kim Reynolds, Speaker Linda Upmeyer, as well as several other Iowa legislators.
