The National Federation of Independent Business has endorsed Republican state Sen. Mick Mulvaney in the race for 5th Congressional District.
Mulvaney is battling U.S. Rep. John Spratt, a Rock Hill Democrat and 28-year incumbent. Mulvaney has served one term in the S.C. House and is in the middle of his first term in the S.C. Senate.
“Small business knows that Mick Mulvaney is the proven, pro-small business candidate in this race,” said Lisa Goeas, NFIB vice president of political operations. “He has actively supported small business since he was first elected to the state house, and was recognized as a pro-business leader on several occasions. We know he would be a successful advocate for South Carolina’s small businesses in Washington.”
