Emmer has strong record in support of small business

The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) has endorsed Congressman Tom Emmer (MN-06) for backing Main Street businesses in Congress.

“Small business owners drive our communities and our economy,” said Emmer. “Business confidence is at an all-time high, but challenges, like a tight labor market, remain.  I am pleased to receive the NFIB’s endorsement as I intend to keep working on legislation to get the government out of the way of the ingenuity and risk taking of entrepreneurs.”

Congressman Emmer earned the endorsement based on his voting record in the 115th Congress on the issues important to small businesses, namely health care, regulation and taxes.  This is the third endorsement for Emmer by the NFIB.

Emmer Files for Reelection

Today Tom Emmer filed for reelection with the Minnesota Secretary of State to run as the Republican-endorsed candidate for Minnesota’s Sixth Congressional District. Emmer is seeking his third term in the U.S. Congress.

“It has been an honor to serve and represent the people of Minnesota’s Sixth Congressional District,” said Emmer, who was unanimously endorsed by Sixth District Republicans at their April convention.

“Together we have accomplished so much, from the largest tax cuts in over three decades to the most significant regulatory relief in nearly a generation. But there is more work to be done to keep this economy moving forward and ensure every citizen of this nation has the opportunity to achieve their American Dream. I am ready to continue representing central Minnesotans and bringing Midwest values to Washington,” Emmer concluded.

Emmer won the 2014 congressional election with over half (56.3%) of the vote. He then went on to win 2016’s election with nearly two-thirds (65.6%) of the vote.

Congressman Emmer’s Statement on the 2018 Election Cycle

Otsego, MN – Today, Congressman Tom Emmer announced he is seeking reelection to represent the people of Minnesota’s Sixth Congressional District in the U.S. House.

“I appreciate the support and encouragement I’ve received over the past few months to run for governor or senator, however, I look forward to continue representing Minnesota common sense and the Midwest values of the people of my district in Congress,” stated Congressman Emmer.

Emmer will be supporting his fellow republicans for federal and statewide offices to continue the momentum of the 2016 election.

“As Deputy Chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee [NRCC], I will be working hard to retain the Majority in the U.S. House of Representatives this November.  In Minnesota, we have great Members like Erik Paulsen and Jason Lewis who we need back in Washington.  We also look forward to getting candidates like Jim Hagedorn and Pete Stauber to join them in the next Congress.  In addition, with both U.S. Senate seats, the Minnesota House, governor and all of the other state constitutional offices on the ballot, 2018 will be an opportunity for republicans to post major electoral gains and turn Minnesota red, ” observed Emmer.

“Under the leadership of Chairman Stivers, the NRCC set a fundraising record for a non-election year with $85 million raised and $44 million on hand. We will use those resources to turn out American voters who support our pro-growth agenda of getting the federal government out of the way,” said Emmer, who was also recently picked to chair the March Dinner, the NRCC’s largest national fundraising event of the year.

Congressman Emmer was first elected to the U.S. House in 2014 and won re-election in 2016 by 31 points.  He is a Member of the Financial Services Committee, and also a Member of the Republican Deputy Whip Team and the House Republican Steering Committee.
