TOMS RIVER, NJ – July 31, 2020 – David Richter, the Republican nominee for Congress in New Jersey’s Third District, announced today that he has received the endorsement of the National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB).
NFIB is the voice of small business, advocating on behalf of America’s small and independent business owners, both in Washington, D.C., and in all 50 state capitals. NFIB is nonprofit, nonpartisan, and member-driven. Since their founding in 1943, NFIB has been exclusively dedicated to small and independent businesses.
“Thanks to his background in business, David Richter deeply understands the challenges our members are facing,” said Eileen Kean, NFIB’s New Jersey State Director. “We know that he will be a proud supporter of the issues our members are concerned with, such as taxes, labor, and regulations. That’s why we are pleased to endorse David Richter today on behalf of New Jersey’s small businesses to represent New Jersey’s 3rd Congressional District.”
“We are confident David Richter will be an advocate for New Jersey’s small business community,” said NFIB National Political Director Sharon Sussin. “His impressive experience and determination to work hard for smaller government and lower taxes make him a strong ally for small businesses in the state and across the country. We look forward to working with him in Congress.”
David Richter’s endorsement comes from NFIB FedPAC, the organization’s political action committee. NFIB FedPAC is funded by NFIB member donations above membership dues. Decisions made by NFIB FedPAC are managed by a member driven grassroots evaluation process. Small business owners are influential in their communities and NFIB members in New Jersey will work hard to elect David Richter to Congress.
“I am honored to have been endorsed by NFIB, the leading advocacy organization representing small business in America. I will be a strong advocate in Congress for small and family-owned businesses, fighting to cut taxes and regulation and helping them recover from the current public health and economic crisis,” said Richter.
Richter is the former CEO of global construction management firm Hill International. During his time at the company, Hill grew from a struggling family business with less than 300 employees into a successful public company with more than 4,300 employees. A lifelong Republican, Richter grew up in and has spent most of his life living and working in the Third District. He earned two bachelor’s degrees and a law degree from Penn as well as master’s degrees from Oxford and Harvard. Richter and his wife Michelle, who have been married for 20 years, are the parents of four teenage daughters.
