The National Federation of Independent Business' political arm has endorsed incumbent state Rep. Ron Travis, R-Dayton, in Travis' 31st House District race with former Rep. Jim Cobb, R-Spring City.

Jim Brown, the NFIB's state director, said Travis "has consistently voted to reduce burdens on small businesses and stood with them time and again in the 108th Tennessee General Assembly."

Brown noted Travis' support for many small business initiatives and his "100 percent" NFIB voting record. Travis said the endorsement shows "I've followed through on my pledge to help small businesses help grow our economy by getting government out of their way."
