Murphysboro, IL—Today, U.S. Rep. Mike Bost submitted 3,121 signatures to become a candidate for re-election in Illinois’ 12th Congressional District. Bost’s campaign, which received petitions from every county in the district, far exceeded the 746 needed to qualify as a candidate.
“I am humbled by the support I’ve received from those who want me to serve them again in Congress,” Bost said. “Over 3,000 individuals signed petitions from every county in the district. This overwhelming support reflects that Republicans, Democrats, and Independents believe in what we are doing to serve Southern Illinois.”
“I was elected to fight for jobs, support a strong national defense, and stand up for our way of life in Southern Illinois. I am very thankful to the many supporters willing to send me back to Washington to continue our mission—serving as their voice in Congress.”
First elected in 2014, Mike Bost represents Illinois’ 12th Congressional District in the United States Congress. A retired U.S. Marine and former firefighter, Mike and his wife Tracy own a business in their hometown of Murphysboro, IL.
