MURPHYSBORO, IL – Rep. Mike Bost announced today that West Frankfort mayor Tom Jordan has endorsed his re-election bid.  Jordan, a Democrat, highlighted Bost’s commitment to working across the aisle and bringing both parties together as reasons for his endorsement.

“I may be a Democrat, but I’m voting for Mike Bost for Congress,” said Jordan.  “Through a lifetime of public service Mike has never hesitated to reach across the aisle when it’s right for his district.  We need more leaders like Mike Bost to cut through the partisanship and fix the mess in Washington.  That’s why I am proud to endorse him for re-election.”

“I am happy to have the endorsement of Mayor Jordan because he understands we must work together to clean up Congress,” said Bost.  “If I am blessed to continue to serve, I will continue to put the needs of Southern Illinois ahead of the partisan political games in Washington.”

Bost traveled to West Frankfort on Tuesday, where he visited the Franklin County Senior Services facility.
