Kevin Bishop (864) 250-1417 or Lorcan Connick (202) 224-5972WASHINGTON -- The National Federation of Independent Business, the nation's leading small business association, today named U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) a Guardian of Small Business for his perfect 100 percent voting record on behalf of America's small-business owners in the 113th Congress.
NFIB President and CEO Dan Danner praised Sen. Graham for "standing up for small business."
In presenting the group's coveted Guardian of Small Business Award, Danner said, "Small-business owners are very politically active - paying close attention to how their lawmakers vote on issues and stand by those who stand for them."
"The record shows that Sen. Graham is a true champion of small business, supporting key small-business votes in the 113th Congress," said Danner. "This award reflects our members' appreciation for supporting the NFIB pro-growth agenda for small business."
NFIB's "How Congress Voted," which serves as a report card for members of Congress, was also unveiled this week. The report presents key small-business votes and voting percentages for each lawmaker. The report is available: http://www.nfib.com/assets/HCV.pdf
