TAYLORVILLE, Ill. -- U.S. House Speaker John Boehner is campaigning for Illinois Republicans in tight races this fall.

Boehner was in Bolingbook Monday for a fundraiser for state Rep. Darlene Senger, who's challenging Democratic U.S. Rep. Bill Foster on Nov. 4.


Boehner also was in Taylorville to stump for U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis, who faces a challenge from former Madison County Judge Ann Callis.

The stops are part of a tour that will take Boehner to districts where the GOP is fighting to hold on or pick up House seats.

Boehner predicts the GOP will have its best showing in Illinois in more than 20 years.

He's scheduled to raise money for state Rep. Mike Bost in O'Fallon Tuesday. Bost is trying to unseat Democratic U.S. Rep. Bill Enyart.
