Small business org backs Jerry Kilgore
From the RTD
- Democratic gubernatorial candidate Timothy M. Kaine touted his pro-business credentials yesterday while Republican Jerry W. Kilgore picked up the support of a major small-business organization.
Kaine's talk fell on deaf ears because of this wonderful news!
- Meanwhile the Virginia director of the National Federation of Independent Business, the state's largest small-business advocacy group, said it thinks so much of Kilgore that it is endorsing a Virginia candidate for governor for the first time.
"His leading opponent causes much doubt and concern among our membership," the director, Gordon Dixon, said. He announced the group's support for Kilgore at EMC Co., a Richmond sheet-metal fabrication and pipe-fitting business.
Dixon said a poll of the organization's 9,000 members in Virginia showed that 90 percent support Kilgore.
Remember the hoopla the Democrats raised when the UMWA backed Kaine? LOL
I work with union and non union people every day. They know Kaine is good for the union....but not the worker. Kaine can have the unions support, but Kilgore will get the workers support. Indeed.
