Small business group endorses Ivey

September 18, 2018

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — A small business federation has endorsed Gov. Kay Ivey in Alabama’s governor’s race.

The National Federation of Independent Business Alabama PAC announced Tuesday that it was supporting Ivey’s re-election bid.

NFIB State Director Rosemary Elebash says Ivey was the “clear choice for Alabama’s small businesses.”

Elebash says that Ivey has promoted a pro-business environment and opposes “higher taxes and burdensome rules and regulations.”

Iveys faces Tuscaloosa Mayor Walt Maddox in the Nov. 6 election for governor.

Maddox has been endorsed by a prominent labor group.

The Alabama AFL-CIO announced last month that it was endorsing Maddox.
