2024 RNC Milwaukee

Rep. Mike Bost, Darren Bailey among Illinois delegates to 2024 RNC in Milwaukee

The convention will get underway on July 15 at the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee

The Illinois Republican Party has named its 64 delegates to the upcoming Republican National Convention in Milwaukee, including two sitting members of Congress and a former gubernatorial candidate.

According to the list released Wednesday, Reps. Mary Miller and Mike Bost will both be among the delegates headed to Milwaukee to nominate former President Donald Trump for the third consecutive election cycle.

Former State Sen. Darren Bailey, who unsuccessfully ran to unseat Bost in Illinois’ 12th Congressional District, will also be in Milwaukee as a delegate, according to officials.

Each of Illinois’ 17 Congressional districts will send three delegates apiece to the convention, according to the Republican Party’s press release. In addition, 13 at-large delegates will also cast ballots during the event, which kicks off Monday at Milwaukee’s Fiserv Forum.

Rep. Darin LaHood, who represents the state’s 16th district, was not among the named delegates to the convention.

One other Congressional candidate will serve as a delegate to the convention, as James Marter will represent the 14th district, according to the press release. He’ll be aiming to unseat incumbent Democratic Rep. Lauren Underwood in the November election.

Don Tracy, chair of the Republican Party in the state of Illinois, will serve as an at-large delegate to the convention.
