MURPYSBORO, IL – The Illinois Farm Bureau today endorses Rep. Mike Bost during an agriculture tour through Perry, Franklin, Williamson, and Jackson counties.  Bost was joined by IFB President Richard Guebert, who presented the endorsement and joined Bost and other farm bureau representatives on the tour.

“Mike Bost listens to and works hard for farmers and has done a terrific job representing the citizens of the 12th Congressional District,” said Illinois Farm Bureau president Richard Guebert.  “Farm Bureau wholeheartedly supports Congressman Bost for reelection.”

“As a member of the House Agriculture Committee, I am proud to have the endorsement of the Illinois Farm Bureau,” said Bost.  “Farming and agriculture represent the backbone of Southern Illinois’ economy.  These hardworking families and businesses have faced growing regulatory pressure from Washington, and it’s important for them to know they have an advocate in their corner fighting for jobs and economic growth.  As long as I’m in Congress, our farmers will have a fighter on their side.”
