With daily attacks on Senator Kirk from Madigan and his allies, there is one simple question for Tammy Duckworth – does she support her party leader, Mike Madigan, and his record of failed leadership here in Illinois?
In spite of Duckworth telling WLS Radio that she has been "very bipartisan" in Congress, Duckworth has been one of the "least effective members of Congress" because she stands by her party bosses at every opportunity. Duckworth stood by Blagojevich while he was under federal investigation, and now she is taking all of Mike Madigan's staff. Bipartisan? Hardly.
Congratulations to U.S. Senator Mark Kirk on his victory in the Republican primary. Every day, Illinois families can count on Mark Kirk's thoughtful, independent leadership in the United States Senate.
