Resources for Candidates

If you’re a small business ally running for office and interested in NFIB’s support, contact us at

Our political action committees endorse pro-small business candidates. We are focused on protecting incumbents who are proven allies of small business, electing pro-small business candidates in open seats, and challenging anti-small business incumbents. 

If you’re running for federal office and are interested in our support, contact Sharon Wolff Sussin, National Political Director, at or 800-552-6342.

Unlike many other national organizations, NFIB also operates individual PACs in most states that support candidates at the state level. If you’re a candidate running for state office and interested in our support, please visit your state page.

Federal Candidate Questionnaire (PDF)

If you’re a candidate seeking support from the Federal PAC, you may print and complete the questionnaire. Completed questionnaires are required for all non-incumbent candidates who are seeking the Federal PAC endorsement.

Please return your questionnaire to us at:
