Darren Duncan Statement on State of the Union Address

Duncan calls Trump’s agenda “bold,” praises his commitment to pro-life issues

DANVILLE—Conservative Vermilion County Treasurer Darren Duncan, a seventh-generation farmer, and candidate for the 15th Congressional District seat in the March primary election released the following statement upon the conclusion of President Trump’s State of the Union speech Tuesday evening:

“Tonight, President Donald Trump outlined his successes in the Oval Office and made a convincing case for four more years in the White House.

I commend the President for laying out a bold agenda to follow up on record low unemployment, millions of new jobs, and incredible increases in wealth on the market for regular people with 401k's and IRA's.

I join President Trump in his commitment to the sanctity of life. Every unborn life is valuable, and I agree we should ban late term abortions.

The President is committed to strengthening our border and ending sanctuary cities. In Congress, I'll join him in that effort.

President Trump promised to "Make America Great Again." The facts are clear: the President's first term has been a rousing success.”


            The 15th Congressional District covers all or parts of 33 counties in central and southern Illinois. It stretches from Champaign and Ford Counties to the north, all the way south to the Ohio River and across to Madison County, just outside of St. Louis. The district includes Danville, Mattoon-Charleston, Effingham, and Collinsville. The current Congressman, John Shimkus, is not seeking re-election.
