The state chapter of the National Federation of Independent Business endorsed Ken Cheuvront. He’s the only Democrat endorsed by the group, something that even the NFIB admits is unusual. This from the Yellow Sheet:
As for Cheuvront’s endorsement, [Farrel] Quinlan said the politics of the Legislature make it difficult for Dems to meet the minimum 70 percent on the scorecard needed to get an endorsement, but Cheuvront was consistently the best of the Dems during his previous stint at the Capitol. Since 2001, his lowest score was 55 percent in 2010, while he peaked at 100 percent in 2006.
Cheuvront wasn’t in the legislature last session so he’s been endorsed on spec. If you want to get an idea on how they think Cheuvront will vote, bills from the last session that NFIB graded included a budget busting cut in the capital gains tax and bill to make it harder for people to claim unemployment insurance. NFIB was also one of the main plaintiffs in the lawsuit against Barack Obama’s health care bill.
