WASHINGTONOct. 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — The President of the Hispanic Business Roundtable Institute (HBRI), Hector Barreto today announced the organization’s endorsement of Congressional and Senatorial candidates for the 2018 election cycle.

“The candidates who have earned the support of HBRI share a vision of America where every Hispanic entrepreneur with the desire to start and grow a business has the right environment to do so,” said Barreto, who is the former head of the U.S. Small Business Administration.

“Each of these candidates understands that less is more when it comes to encouraging entrepreneurship, which is part of the DNA of the Hispanic community,” Barreto added. “They are all proven allies of small business, and have shown they understand how lower taxes and fewer regulations encourages the creation and growth of independently held businesses, which are critical to American job creation and economic vitality.”
