The BIPAC Action Fund announced its endorsement of Rodney Davis for his re-election campaign in the U.S. House of Representatives for Illinois' 13th congressional district on January 31, 2018.
Davis is serving his third term as the Congressman for the 13th District of Illinois, a 14-county district covering both urban and rural areas of Central and Southwestern Illinois. As a Member of the 115th Congress, Rodney serves on the House Committees on Administration, Agriculture, and Transportation & Infrastructure. Rodney was also appointed to serve as Chairman of the House Agriculture Subcommittee on Biotechnology, Horticulture & Research.
Since the age of seven, Rodney has lived in Taylorville, where he attended public school. He continued his education in central Illinois and graduated with honors from Millikin University in Decatur. While growing up, Rodney worked in his parents’ restaurant, so he’s seen first-hand the daily challenges faced by small business owners.
In his role as Projects Director for Congressman John Shimkus, Rodney became intimately familiar with the role that the federal government plays in our communities, where it can help, and where it can hurt. He was instrumental in helping Illinois citizens and communities cut through government red tape and works daily to provide support and relief to a wide array of important local projects.
