National Federation of Independent Business
Jan's campaign proudly announced her endorsement from the National Federation of Independent Business, which maxed out to her campaign at $1,800. However, NFIB is no true independent small business representative--they are yet another far-right special interest member of ALEC.
T-Mobile, Verizon, CenturyLink, PacifiCorp, K12 Inc and others are all ALEC members that have also donated to Jan's campaign. There are no questions that she is beholden to special interests, not her constituents.
