Salmon for Congress
EAST VALLEY - Matt Salmon, former Congressman and Republican nominee for Arizona's 5th congressional district, today received the endorsement from the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), a leading advocate for small businesses and pro-growth policies. NFIB supports and endorses candidates who are committed to advancing pro-business legislation and endorsed Salmon in the CD-5 race after examining his outstanding track record of fighting for small businesses.

"NFIB is widely known for their support of the small business community and I am honored to have their endorsement," stated former Congressman Salmon. "Creating an environment in which small businesses in the East Valley and throughout America can succeed is one of my highest priorities and I am excited to work with NFIB to make that happen."
