Dave Severin Receives the Endorsement of Both Southern Illinois Congressmen


Dave Severin, candidate for State Representative in the 117th district, today has received the endorsement of both Congressman Mike Bost (R-IL 12) and Congressman John Shimkus (R-IL 15):


Congressman Mike Bost

“After serving in the Illinois House myself, I understand that we need to send someone to Springfield that will fight against Mike Madigan and the Chicago political machine. Unfortunately, that machine has taken hold of the 117th district for the last 13 years. I’m endorsing Dave Severin for State Representative because he will be the one to break that hold. We need good, honest, and service minded folks to get this state turned around. That’s who Dave is and why I’m proud to support him.”


Congressman John Shimkus

“I believe Dave Severin is the right man to help get this state back on track and it’s why I am endorsing him for State Representative. Dave is a small business owner, a career community servant, and is a conservative leader looking to make the right kind of difference. That is the type of person we need to send to Springfield to fight for Southern Illinois.”


Dave Severin released the following statement in response to the endorsements:

“I am humbled and honored to receive the endorsement of Congressman Bost & Congressman Shimkus – two men who fight tirelessly, day in and day out to make our country and Southern Illinois great again. Congressman Bost has fought Mike Madigan’s destruction of our state for years and I look forward to carrying on that tradition. Congressman Shimkus has been the backbone for the conservative movement in Illinois and delivers for his constituents. I look forward to bringing that same spirit to Springfield. Working together – we will turn this state around.”
