NFIB Endorses 24 Republicans (22 incumbents), One Democrat

The National Federation of Independent Business made endorsements in 25 legislative races last week with 22 going to incumbent Republicans, one to an incumbent Democrat and two to Republicans running in open Senate seats.
The sole Democrat winning an endorsement was Rep. John DeBerry of Memphis.
The two open seat endorsements were in Senate District 18 and Senate District 22, both created without an incumbent by redistricting earlier this year. Both endorsements went to Republicans with a history of being legislators – former Sen. Ferrell Haile of Gallatin in District 18 and state Rep. Joey Hensley oh Hohenwald, who is giving up his House seat to run in Senate District 22.
Incumbent Republicans in East Tennessee receiving NFIB’s blessing include Sen. Doug Overbey of Maryville in the Senate and Reps. Tony Shipley of Kingsport, David Hawk of Greeneville, Dale Ford of Jonesborough, Art Swann of Maryville, Don Miller of Morristown, Jefemy Faison of Cosby, Richard Montgomery of Sevierville and Bob Ramsey of Maryville.
