DNC on Mike Pence’s Visit to Illinois

Ahead of Mike Pence’s scheduled fundraiser for Rep. Mike Bost in O’Fallon this afternoon, DNC Midwest Press Secretary Mandy McClure released the following statement:


“Illinois Republicans like Mike Bost and Bruce Rauner, who spend all their time cozying up to this administration, need to answer for the dangerous impacts of the GOP agenda, like sabotaging our health care system, separating families at the border, and passing a tax bill that benefits the wealthiest among us at the expense of middle class families. No amount of propping up by Mike Pence and his special interest allies can fix the fact that Mike Bost has consistently prioritized wealthy donors over the interests of Illinois workers.


“While Mike Bost hides from voters in closed door meetings, Brendan Kelly is talking directly to Illinois voters about the issues that matter, like health care, jobs and infrastructure. This fall, voters will have a clear choice between a congressman who will serve Republicans’ partisan agenda, and one who will stand up for the needs of the 12th District.”
