Senator Bryant Sweeps Pro-Life Endorsements in 58th Senate Race

MURPHYSBORO - Assistant Senate Minority Leader State Senator Terri Bryant (R-Murphysboro) announced this week the endorsement of Illinois' largest and most influential pro-life advocacy groups in the race for 58th district State Senator.

Senator Bryant and her husband Rick are the parents of two children and six grandchildren. Since taking office as 58th district State Senator, Terri Bryant has amassed a 100% pro-life voting record.

"I'm honored to receive the endorsement of Illinois Citizens for Life and Pro-Family Alliance. I stand for life. I have voted NO on using tax dollars to pay for abortions, I voted no on removing the right of parents to be notified prior to their child receiving abortion services. I voted against using tax dollars to pay for abortions for undocumented immigrants. I voted against the unconstitutional law that unfairly targeted pregnancy care clinics with huge financial penalties for cases of 'misinformation' as determined solely by Democrat politicians. My record on life is 100% rock-solid."

Bryant says she'll be the reliable pro-life candidate in the race for 58th district State Senator. 

"My record is clear. I vote on the side of protecting life every chance I have. I am a mom, a grandma, and I'm also a conservative, pro-life State Senator. I'm grateful to Illinois' largest and most influential pro-life groups for their support and for standing firm for life."

Senator Terri Bryant Announces Bid for Re Election

State Senator Terri Bryant (R-Murphysboro) says she'll seek another term in the Illinois State Senate. Senator Bryant is currently serving as Assistant Minority Leader and the spokesperson and ranking member of the Illinois State Senate's Energy and Public Utilities Committee. The Murphysboro Republican says she believes her strong conservative record makes her the best choice to continue to serve the citizens of the 58th Senate district.

Bryant first took office in January 2015 after defeating a Mike Madigan-funded Democrat opponent. Bryant has since defeated both primary and general election opponents by wide margins. The 58th district State Senator says serving the citizens of the Metro-East, central, eastern, and southern Illinois is a privilege and honor, and she pledges to continue to represent the shared values of the citizens she serves.

"I'm proud to have built a strong conservative record as State Senator. I'm running for re-election because I believe I am best suited to continue representing the values and interests of the people of the 58th district in Springfield," Bryant said. "We have a lot of work to do to bring Illinois back from the damage that the liberal-progressive agenda has caused. Crime is out of control, taxes and inflation are through the roof, and corruption continues to plague state government. We can turn Illinois around with the right leaders in office."

Senator Bryant currently represents all or parts of 14 counties in the 58th district which spans a territory that stretches from the Mississippi River on the west side of the district to the Wabash River to the east.

"I represent a huge district with diverse needs and that means I have to be on the road meeting my constituents where they are to understand what they need," Bryant said. "It's a joy and a blessing to have made so many great friends in this Senate district and I am so proud to help my people. I look forward to the challenges and successes that lay ahead as I seek another term in the Illinois Senate. I'm so thankful for the opportunity to serve and look forward to continuing in this role for another term."

Senator Bryant previously served as State Representative. During her time in Springfield, Bryant has compiled a 100% pro-life and 100% pro-2nd Amendment voting record. Senator Bryant has also voted against expanded rights and benefits for illegal immigrants and has voted to cut taxes on food, fuel, medicine, and school supplies. She has also voted against raising pay for politicians and budgets that expand the size and scope of state government.

"I'm a proud conservative," Bryant said. "What Illinois needs at this critical time in our history is someone that will hold the line on spending, respect and defend the Constitution, protect the sanctity of life, and oppose measures that compromise our state and nation's sovereignty. That's what I've done in office and that's what I plan to continue to do in another term. I am thankful for the support that I have received from the citizens of the 58th Senate district and look forward to continuing to serve my friends and neighbors in Springfield."

State Senator Terri Bryant Announces Re-Election Campaign for New 58th District

Murphysboro….58th District State Senator and Murphysboro native Terri Bryant will be a candidate for re-election for Illinois' 58th district State Senate seat that will see new boundaries established starting in January 2023. Though some of the new legislative boundary lines may still change upon the resolution of pending legal challenges, Bryant says she is confident she is best positioned to serve the people of Southern Illinois in the Illinois Senate.
“The people of the 58th district deserve a Senator with a strong conservative record,” Bryant said.

“My record as State Senator reflects my pro-growth, pro-jobs, limited government philosophy. I’ve stood strong against what I think are executive overreaches and I’ve taken JB Pritzker to task for his failed handling of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Governor closed businesses, kicked people out of their jobs, and then horribly botched the distribution of unemployment benefits, causing hardship throughout the State of Illinois. The Governor’s lack of engagement with the legislature in managing the COVID-19 pandemic amount to the actions of an out-of-control chief executive and people are sick of it.”

Bryant says she’s built the conservative voting record that best represents the views and values of the people of Southern Illinois.
“As your State Senator, I have vigorously opposed liberal-progressive efforts to expand taxpayer funding for abortions and fought against liberal-progressive politicians' overreaching gun control efforts. I have worked to meet with, speak to, and represent the interests of all of the people I represent. I know what the people of Southern Illinois need because I go and meet my constituents where they are. I am proud to do so!”

Senator Bryant spent 5 years serving as 115th district State Representative in the Illinois House before announcing her run for the 58th district State Senate seat that was vacated by former Senator Paul Schimpf. Bryant says she’s once again running for the 58th district seat to fight liberal-progressive policies like defunding the police and being turning Illinois into a sanctuary state.

“No matter where I go, I hear from Southern Illinoisans that are weary and tired of corrupt Chicago politicians running our state into the ground,” Bryant said. “I’ve voted to enhance ethics reforms to stamp out corruption and fought against politicians giving themselves pay raises. I’ve been working hard to highlight the failures of JB Pritzker and his Democratic supermajorities in the House and Senate as they continue to pass laws that make Illinois stick out like a sore blue liberal-progressive thumb in the Midwest.”

“The people of Southern Illinois can be sure that I will continue to stand against the leftist-progressive transformation of our once-great State of Illinois,” Bryant said. “I look forward to a spirited campaign and continuing to fight for the best interests of the people of Southern Illinois when I am re-elected 58th district State Senator!”
