Small Business Wins Big on Election Day

Small business supporters swept three of the most watched Senate races: Tom Cotton in Arkansas, Cory Gardner in Colorado and Joni Ernst in Iowa.

In governor's races, NFIB-backed candidates in 23 states won on Tuesday, including Florida's Rick Scott, Maryland's Larry Hogan and Wisconsin's Scott Walker.

With Republicans now holding majorities in both the House and the Senate, small business owners will be looking for action to reign in government regulation, provide tax relief and find sensible solutions to rising healthcare costs brought on by Obamacare.

Each week, NFIB looks at the issues affecting small business in Washington and around the country. Find more Week in Small Business videos at, and watch other NFIB web series at
