Trump to campaign for Bost in Murphysboro
U.S. Rep. Mike Bost says President Donald Trump plans to visit Southern Illinois for a campaign rally in Murphsyboro on Saturday, Oct. 27.
Bost, who represents the 12th Congressional District of Illinois, which includes much of Metro East, is locked in a hard-fought battle with Democrat Brendan Kelly, the state’s attorney of St. Clair County. The election is Nov. 6. Trump has been on a continuous swing for Republican candidates in recent weeks. Bost is from Murphysboro.
“I’m honored to have the president visit Southern Illinois,” said Bost. “President Trump enjoys wide support in Southern Illinois for good reason. I’ve worked with him to bring 800 steel jobs back in Granite City, reform the VA, and give working families a $2,200 tax cut.”
The event is taking place at Southern Illinois Airport, Hangar 6, 605 Flightline Road, Murphysboro.
