WASHINGTON – The National Retail Federation (NRF) has named Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) a 2022 “Hero of Main Street” for the senator’s continued support of the retail industry in Congress.

“It’s an honor to support the retail job creators and small businesses that help Louisiana communities thrive, and I’m grateful to receive this award today,” said Kennedy.

“It is an honor to recognize Sen. John Kennedy and the 2022 ‘Heroes of Main Street’ for their commitment to supporting policies and programs that ensure the economic health and viability of the retail industry,” said NRF President and CEO Matthew Shay.

Retail is the nation’s largest private-sector employer, contributing $3.9 trillion to annual GDP and supporting one in four U.S. jobs—about 52 million working Americans.
