Folks, I just got off the phone with President Donald Trump & he has officially endorsed our campaign for Congress! I’ve been a proud ally in his fight to put #AmericaFirst, & I’m honored to once again receive his endorsement.

After nearly two years of Biden & Pelosi’s failed leadership, our nation is less safe, less prosperous, & less prepared to face security challenges across the globe.

To build the Republican majority in Congress we need to hold this Administration accountable & we need to keep Southern Illinois red. I appreciate President Trump’s support in making that happen. #Bost2022
