NFIB backs Frederick

The Virginia chapter of the National Federation of Independent Businesses today announced support for Republican Senate candidate Jeff Frederick.

Frederick, a former delegate, is looking to unseat Democratic Sen. Toddy Puller, of Fairfax, in the 36th District. That district now includes parts of northern Stafford County.

Frederick said he thinks the Democrat-led Senate is “the roadblock on moving Virginia forward, especially in attracting businesses, creating jobs, and growing the economy.  … Too many Richmond politicians see small businesses as sources of government revenue, rather than creators of jobs.”

Yesterday the NFIB announced its support for Del. Bobby Orrock, R-Caroline.
