BELLEVILLE, Ill., Jan. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Former Congressman Bill Enyart today strongly endorsed Democratic congressional candidate C.J. Baricevic (Bar-civic) in the race for the 12th congressional seat currently held by Republican incumbent Mike Bost.
Enyart, who represented the 12th district from 2012-2014, called Baricevic the "clear choice for families and seniors, who will put the interests of the District ahead of partisan bickering and special interests in Washington."
"Congress needs fresh young voices and CJ Baricevic will be a strong new voice for working families and seniors. Unlike Mike Bost, CJ will oppose trade deals that ship jobs abroad, supports raising the minimum wage and equal pay for women, and opposes turning Medicare into a voucher program or privatizing Social Security," said Enyart.
"District voters will have a clear choice. Congressman Bost represents Wall Street, special interests, continued gridlock and dysfunction in Congress. Or voters can choose CJ Baricevic, who will work with Republicans as well as Democrats to create jobs, lower the cost of health care, make college more affordable, and protect Medicare and Social Security. I strongly support CJ Baricevic and I urge all of my former supporters to do so as well," said Enyart.
