Carson joins a list of candidates supported by NAWBO National.
Washington, D.C. —The National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) is announcing its endorsement of U.S. Representative André Carson in his bid for re-election in Indiana’s 7th District.
“From his position on the U.S. House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee to his work with SBA on partners and programs like SBDCs, SCORE and WBCs, Congressman Carson has demonsrated his diligence to looking out for small and emerging business owners,” explains Molly Gimmel, NAWBO National Board Chair. “We appreciate his advocacy on behalf of women business owners and are proud to endorse his bid for re-election.”
“Small businesses are the engines of our economy and the backbone of Indiana prosperity including jobs, growth and innovation,” said Congressman Andre Carson. “I’m grateful to have the support of the National Association of Women Business Owners in my re-election campaign for Congress. I will continue to advocate and support women small business owners across our state and work with them to cut red tape so that they can grow, hire, and succeed in our economy.”
“NAWBO Indianapolis is proud of our strong working relationship with the Congressman and his staff. As our bipartisan by design policy espouses, we look for public servants/elected officials from both political parties with whom we can work together on behalf of our members. In André Carson we have found just such a partner,” says Jessica Nickloy, President of NAWBO Indianapolis.
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.
