(September 4, 2018 Washington, D.C.) —Congresswoman Adams joins a list of candidates supported by NAWBO National. The National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) is announcing its endorsement of U.S. Congresswoman Alma Adams in her bid for re-election in North Carolina’s 12th Congressional District.
“Congresswoman Adams has devoted years to being a public servant and a thoughtful steward on behalf of women business owners,” explains Molly Gimmel, NAWBO National Board Chair. “Most recently through her work on the U.S. House Small Business Committee, we have found her to be an advocate for our nation’s small and women business owners. We look forward to working with her more in the years to come and are proud to endorse her bid for re-election.”
“As a woman business owner myself, I am honored to be endorsed by the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO). Small business ownership helps women create and grow wealth, and become leaders in their communities. As a member of the Committee on Small Business, I will continue fighting to expand opportunities for women and minority owned small businesses,” said Congresswoman Adams.
NAWBO National considers candidates for endorsement after they have won their primary. The selection of candidates is based solely on their history of business ownership or their voting record demonstrating their consistent support of business owners. Additional endorsements will be made by NAWBO prior to the November 6 general election.
