Washington, D.C. – On Tuesday, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce announced its endorsement of Representative Mike Bost to represent Illinois’ Twelfth Congressional District. The Chamber endorses pro-business candidates for federal office who will vigorously support public policy that will advance economic growth, support jobs, and promote fiscal responsibility. 

“Congressman Mike Bost’s record of leadership and delivering results for the constituents and businesses of Illinois are significant,” said U.S. Chamber of Commerce Great Lakes Region Vice President Kevin Courtois. “As a small business owner, Rep. Bost uniquely understands the economic needs and challenges facing business owners, workers, and families in Southern Illinois. His commitment to pro-growth solutions and enacting policies that will support the American Dream have earned him the endorsement of the U.S. Chamber. We are proud to support Congressman Bost’s re-election.”

“As a small business owner, I am honored to receive the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s endorsement,” said Congressman Mike Bost. “Our small businesses are at the heart of our Southern Illinois communities, and they are hurting after COVID shutdowns and two years of rising inflation and supply chain issues. I’ll keep working to support pro-growth policies that help them not just survive, but also thrive.”
