MURPHYSBORO –Tuesday, U.S. Rep. Mike Bost released the first television advertisement in his re-election campaign for Illinois' 12th Congressional District, titled "Stand Up." The ad will begin running with 500 points this week in the Metro East media market.
"I was proud to feature my grandchildren in our first ad because I believe this campaign is about the future," said Bost. "We must cut wasteful spending, reduce the debt, and lower the tax burden for working families if we're going to strengthen the world our kids and grandkids will inherit. I look forward to continuing to stand up for Southern Illinois' future and ensure our young people inherit a better world than the generation before them."
