Davis Campaign Statement on Mary Miller Announcement

Mary Miller doesn’t live in the 15th District, supports the Never Trump ticket for IL Gov, and voted with Democrats like AOC to defund our military and block a pay raise for our troops

 

Taylorville, IL — Rodney Davis’ campaign for Congress released the following statement after Mary Miller announced she’s running for Congress in the 15th District. The statement is attributed to Davis campaign spokesperson Aaron DeGroot:

“Mary Miller is only an outsider in the sense that she doesn’t live in the 15th District. She’s a carpetbagger and Chicagoland native. Miller is so desperate to stay in Congress she’s running in a district she doesn’t live in, just like her husband. The Millers are taking a page out of the Springfield political insider playbook. Politics is their family business.

“Even worse, Miller supports the Never Trump ticket for Illinois Governor and refused to vote against Nancy Pelosi’s sham, partisan 1/6 Select Committee. All Mary Miller has to show for her time in Congress is quoting Hitler and voting with Democrats like AOC and the far left squad to defund our military and block a pay raise for our troops. That’s shameful. It’s clear that Mary Miller is all talk, no action.

“Rodney Davis is a conservative who gets things done. He’s already been hard at work highlighting his conservative accomplishments and work with President Trump during his time in office. That’s why he’s earned support from countless grassroots Republican leaders in the district. Our campaign looks forward to educating voters on how Rodney is an effective conservative member of Congress and Mary is not.”

Background:

Mary Miller lives in the 12th District, not the 15th District. She is originally from Naperville. Miller has endorsed Darren Bailey for Illinois Governor, who has selected “Never Trumper” Stephanie Trussell as his running mate.

Miller voted No on the FY22 defense budget, referred to as the NDAA. The NDAA funds the military and provides a pay raise for the troops. Also voting no were Democrat Reps. Alexandra Ocasio Cortez and other members of the far left Democrat “Squad.” Miller did not vote against Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s partisan 1/6 Select Committee. The House Clerk lists her as “Not Voting” on the resolution.

Just days after being sworn into office, Miller positively quoted Adolf Hitler in a prepared speech outside of the U.S. Capitol, saying Hitler “was right on one thing.”

Rodney Davis is a conservative who gets things done. He is pro-life, pro-Second Amendment, and is a leading voice against Nancy Pelosi’s partisan 1/6 Select Committee and Congressional Democrats’ attempts to push a federal takeover of our election system.

Rodney has been endorsed by 32 of the 35 Republican county chairmen in the 15th District, Congressmen Darin LaHood and Mike Bost, former Congressman John Shimkus, and over a dozen state lawmakers who represent the 15th District in the Illinois General Assembly. In previous campaigns for Congress, Rodney has been endorsed by the Illinois Farm Bureau, the National Rifle Association, pro-life advocates, small businesses, labor organizations, and many others.

In 2020, Rodney served as an Illinois Co-Chair of President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign. He opposed both attempts by Democrats in Congress to impeach President Trump and voted with Trump nearly 90% of the time when he was in office.
