MURPHYSBORO, IL– U.S. Representative Mike Bost (IL-12) released the following statement declaring victory in the 12th Congressional District race Tuesday evening:

“Tracy and I can’t thank the people of Southern Illinois enough for their support and their prayers. Our victory tonight sends a powerful message to out-of-touch politicians everywhere that we’re unified and unyielding in the fight for our conservative values. Joe Biden’s going to be held accountable for destroying the economy, ignoring the border crisis, and taking us from America First to America Last in two years flat. But none of this would be possible without the trust of voters from across our vast 12th District. Serving you is truly the honor of a lifetime.”
