September 12 – Erika Harold has received an endorsement in the race for Illinois Attorney General from the Illinois political action committee of the National Federation of Independent Business.
Harold is the Republican candidate to replace outgoing AG Lisa Madigan, with Kwame Raoul opposing her on the Democrats’ ticket. The NFIB Illinois PAC based its endorsement on Harold’s record and position on issues affecting Illinois’ small businesses.
“This is an important race for small business,” said NFIB Illinois Director Mark Grant. “Erika Harold is committed to fixing Illinois’ broken workers’ comp system. The system we have today is inefficient and expensive. Erika Harold supports a system that improves efficiencies, eliminates fraud and abuse, and reduces costs for employers including small businesses.
“Illinois needs an attorney general who will ensure a level playing field for Illinois’ job creators.”
Harold said small businesses will play a vital role in turning the state around.
“Our state desperately needs to create more good-paying jobs and to grow our economy,” she said. “We can do that by giving small businesses the tools they need to thrive. As Illinois’ next Attorney General, I will advocate for balanced workers’ compensation reform and a business environment that’s more friendly to employers and employees alike.”
NFIB is the nation’s leading small-business association.
