Mary Miller secures Donald Trump endorsement over 15th district incumbent Rodney Davis

On Saturday, former President Donald Trump endorsed 15th congressional district representative Mary Miller in the upcoming Illinois Republican primary on June 28. Miller, who quickly earned notoriety nearly a year ago at a rally two days after she was sworn in uttering a quote from Adolf Hitler, will have to unseat GOP incumbent Rodney Davis.

Illinois’ new district lines moved Davis' Taylorville home out of the 13th congressional district and into the 15th. Miller's residence in Oakland home was drawn into the 12th district. Representatives are not required to live in the districts they represent.

On November 30, with the backing of 31 of the 35 Republican county chairmen and 14 Republican state lawmakers in IL-15, Rep. Davis announced his bid for reelection.

"My family and I are excited to announce that I am running for re-election to Congress," said Davis in a press release. "I’ve been proud to fight hard for and work on behalf of central Illinois families in this district for many years, both as a member of Congress and as a staffer to my good friend and mentor, former Congressman John Shimkus."

In the New Year's Day release Rep. Miller said she is "in a strong position to win re-election in the new 15th Congressional District, which gave President Trump 68 percent of the vote in 2020."

The former president, who is considering another campaign for the highest seat in the land, said, "Congresswoman Miller is doing a fantastic job representing the people of Illinois! Strong on Election Security, the Second Amendment, and our Military and Vets, Mary is a champion of our America First agenda. She fights hard against Joe Biden’s open borders, runaway inflation, and the radical indoctrination of our children. Mary has my Complete and Total Endorsement!”

Clearly, the thinkers in the Miller campaign camp deemed Davis' seat an easier mark than that of Rep. Mike Bost in IL-12 in her new home district. Both Davis and Bost are liked by constituents and well-funded.

Rep. Miller's outspoken rhetoric on America's Covid-19 vaccine strategy and voting no on awarding Congressional Gold Medals to Capitol Police officers who stopped the January 6 insurrection may handicap her election efforts. A member of the ultraconservative Freedom Caucus, she was one of 21 Republicans to vote against the bill that passed with 406 votes.

In the New Year's Day release, Rep. said she is not a career politician and not afraid to take on the DC swamp.

"I'm proud to be the only member of Congress from Illinois who is fighting to impeach Joe Biden and the lawless Biden Cabinet for leaving our border exposed to an invasion of illegal immigration," said Miller, whose two-year term ends next January. "I am the only member from Illinois who has fought every effort by Joe Biden to use COVID vaccine mandates to fire Americans from their jobs and I opposed funding COVID vaccine databases that share information with the federal government."

Miller was one of 147 Republicans who voted to overturn results in the last election.

"With hard work, prayer, and faith in our country, conservatives will take back the House and Make America Great Again," she said.
