Washington, D.C. —The National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) is announcing its endorsement of U.S. Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers in her bid for re-election in Washington’s 5th District.
“As the highest ranking woman in Congress, we rely on her commitment to bring attention to the issues impacting women business owners and small business owners across the country,” explains Molly Gimmel, NAWBO National Board Chair. “Through legislation like the Spurring Business in Communities Act, Congresswoman McMorris Rodgers has shown herself to be a champion of start ups and small business owners. She understands women business owners nationwide need greater access to capital and other resources and is working diligently to ensure they have that access. We are proud to support her in her bid for re-election.”
NAWBO National also endorsed McMorris Rodgers during the 2014 and 2016 elections.
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.
