“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."
