GOP Congressman Shimkus to Endorse Plummer in 12th District Race

Feb 10, 2012

Republican Congressman John Shimkus will make stops in four locations Monday to endorse Jason Plummer in the 12th congressional district primary election next month.

Monday morning, Plummer (pictured) will be with Shimkus for stops in Alton and Belleville. Then that afternoon, the duo will stop at the Muni West Building in Mt. Vernon at 1 p.m. and finally the Williamson County Regional Airport in Marion at 2:45 p.m.

Plummer used his family's lumber fortune in an unsuccessful bid for lieutenant governor in 2010.

The seat has belonged to democrat Jerry Costello for over 20 years. But he decided to retire from political office and pursue other interests.
