Phil Bryant, the Republican nominee for lieutenant governor, accepted the endorsement of the Mississippi chapter of the National Federation of Independent Business on Tuesday at Peggy Bishop’s Magnolia Wholesale Florist on Robert E. Lee Drive in Tupelo.

The announcement was made by Ron Aldridge, state director of the organization. “Ninety-six percent of NFIB/Mississippi member respondents registered their support for Phil Bryant’s candidacy in a recent survey. Clearly our members recognize who their friends are.”
