Plummer also says that he felt that the location for this announcement was perfect because the people of East Alton have seen job outsourcing firsthand and they know that the region has the resources to bring the jobs back to the area.

The GOP Congressional candidate for the 12th district has also received endorsements from several state leaders including U.S. Senator Mark Kirk, Congressman John Shimkus, State Senator Sam McCann and Madison County Treasurer Kurt Prenzler.
