Web Editor - Mason Stevenson

Illinois State Representative Mike Bost plans to announce his candidacy for Congress next week.

He would challenge newcomer Democrat Bill Enyart.

Bost gained notoriety for an outburst in Springfield back in 2012.

The republican told Local 6 he expects to make the official announcement Monday during three stops in southern Illinois.

Bost has represented Illinois' 115th district since 1994.
