Congressman John Shimkus (IL-15), Rodney Davis (IL-13) and Mike Bost (IL-12) recently endorsed State Representative Charlie Meier’s re-election in the upcoming Republican primary. The Southern Illinois Congressman endorsed Meier based on his record of being a strong defender of Southern Illinois’ conservative values.
“Charlie Meier is not only fighting for us in Southern Illinois by saying no to the Chicago Machine, he’s fighting for our core conservative values,” said Congressman John Shimkus. “Charlie Meier is pro-life, pro-family and a strong defender of our Second Amendment. That’s why I endorse Charlie Meier’s re-election. He truly is a citizen legislator, no problem too big or small for Charlie, if you have an issue you with state government, he’s here to help.”
“While I’m fighting for you in Washington, Charlie Meier is fighting for you in Springfield,” said Congressman Rodney Davis. “Charlie has proven he’s not afraid to say no to Mike Madigan. I am proud to call Charlie Meier Southern Illinois’ State Representative which is why I support his re-election.”
“I have served at the State House with Charlie Meier, he doesn’t back down when it comes to fighting for Southern Illinois,” said Congressman Mike Bost. “I have witnessed Charlie stand up to Chicago and Mike Madigan’s flawed agenda in Springfield. Charlie Meier is the clear choice to continue serving as Southern Illinois’ State Representative."
Charlie Meier is a lifelong resident of Washington County, residing on his family’s Centennial Farm. In 2009 Charlie was awarded the State of Illinois Conservation Farm Family of the Year, which recognizes leaders in land conservation that uphold the responsibility to restore its natural productive beauty for future generations. The 108th District includes portions of Clinton, Madison, St. Clair, and Washington counties.
“I’m honored to receive the endorsement from our Southern Illinois Republican Congressmen,” said Rep. Meier. “I am in good company, we are all pro-life, pro-family, and pro-Second Amendment supporters. While I am fighting the Chicago-Madigan machine in Springfield, our Southern Illinois Republican Congressman are fighting the liberal Nancy Pelosi anti-Trump agenda in Washington. Their endorsement reflects the values which are very important to the people we represent in Southern Illinois.”
The Republican primary will be held on Tuesday, March 20, 2018. Absentee voting begins today, February 8th.
