Vice President Mike Pence is scheduled to attend a fundraiser in O’Fallon for U.S. Congressman Mike Bost next week.
The fundraiser will be on Thursday, July 19 at the Regency Conference Center. The event is scheduled to start at 2:30pm. Pence will also be doing an event in St. Louis to talk about the recent tax reform bill passed by Republicans in Washington, D.C.
Congressman Bost, who represents the Illinois 12th congressional district, is being challenged this year by St. Clair County State’s Attorney Brendan Kelly. Kelly won the Democrat nomination in the general primary on March 20. This congressional race is considered one of the top 50 competitive congressional races this year. The Cook Political Report ranks the district as a toss up and Inside Elections ranks the district as lean Republican.
