The NFIB Tennessee Political Action Committee has endorsed State Representative Mike Sparks (R-Smyrna) in the 49th House District race. The PAC is comprised exclusively of NFIB members.
"Our members support the candidates who support small business," NFIB State Director Jim Brown said. "Representative Sparks started his first business at the age of 21. As an entrepreneur and business owner, he truly understands the critical role small business plays in a strong economy, and he is committed to maintaining an environment where small businesses can grow and create jobs."
"I am grateful to receive this endorsement from the NFIB as I seek to continue serving the men, women, and families of House District 49," said Representative Sparks. "I have prioritized job creation and have backed common sense legislation that maintains our state's economic momentum throughout my time as a member of our General Assembly. I look forward to continuing this work alongside my Republican colleagues in the years ahead."
The NFIB Tennessee PAC's endorsement is critical to the campaign of Representative Sparks. 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. The PAC's support is based on the candidates' positions and records on small business issues.
