Independent businesses group, National Right to Life Committee endorse Sen. Lamar Alexander

NASHVILLE — Republican U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander has picked up the endorsements of both the National Federation of Independent Business and the National Right to Life Committee in his reelection bid.

The National Federation of Independent Business, Tennessee's and the nation’s leading small-business association, today endorsed Alexander for a third term. The announcement was made this morning at an NFIB/Tennessee event at Stowers Machinery Corp., an NFIB-member business in Knoxville.

“Our members support the members of Congress who support small business, and Senator Alexander's record speaks for itself,” said Lisa Goeas, NFIB vice president for Political and Grassroots, in a news release. "He understands that we can't afford to burden Tennessee's and America's job creators with unnecessary regulations and excessive taxes that make it even harder for them to grow and create jobs."

The endorsement from the National Right to Life Committee, the nation's oldest and largest pro-life organization, came Thursday, according to the group's website.
