Rep._Mike_Bost_official_photo _117th_CongressMURPHYSBORO, IL– U.S. Representative Mike Bost (IL-12) announced Wednesday his re-election campaign is endorsed by 20 Republican Central Committee leaders from across the newly-mapped 12th Congressional District. Bost's coalition of support includes the 12th District Central Committee chair and vice-chair; all 11 county chairs from Bost's current district; and seven chairs redistricted from the current 15th District into the new 12th District.

“As leaders of Illinois' 12th District Republican Central Committee, we are pleased to endorse Congressman Mike Bost for re-election,” said the IL-12 Central Committee leaders in a joint statement.He has a proven track record of fighting for our conservative values and delivering real results for Southern Illinois families during his service in the U.S. House of Representatives and the Illinois General Assembly. As Democrats in Washington continue to tax and spend their way towards socialism, Mike is the strong conservative voice we need to push back on their extreme agenda. We proudly support Congressman Mike Bost and look forward to working together on behalf of the people of Southern Illinois.”

“Tracy and I have been blessed with the tremendous support and friendship of so many Republican leaders across Southern Illinois,” said Bost. “I am truly honored to receive their endorsements so early on in the campaign. We've already begun building an aggressive grassroots operation and I am confident our momentum will only continue to grow. As your representative, I do not take your trust in me lightly. I will always fight for our shared constitutional conservative values in Congress."

  1. He’s a Rino who could be beat by Mary Miller. So he is trying to intimidate anyone from challenging him in the primary. Hopefully the latest Congressional map will be thrown out by the court like the State District map was. It’s a ridiculous gerrymander. In their zeal to get rid of Mary Miller and get another Hispanic district, the Dems look to have threatened some of their own Congressmen like Casten and Newsom if 2022 is as bad a year as they had in Virginia and New Jersey yesterday.
    And maybe Miller will run for Senate instead of taking on Bost. “Senate President Steve Sweeney, the longest-serving legislative leader in New Jersey history, is on the verge of losing his own State Senate seat in what could be a stunning political upset. Edward Durr, a conservative truck driver who reported spending just $153 on his campaign, leads Sweeney by 2,009 votes in the South Jersey-based 3rd legislative district. https://newjerseyglobe.com/legislature/sweeney-trailing-in-re-election-bid-polistina-stanfied-win-pappas-leads-zwicker/
    Yes, even Duckworth could go next year with a first class conservative with tremendous personal appeal like Miller. 2022 looks like the wildest political year since 1860 with everyone angry at incumbents of both parties.
