IL: Congressman Kirk Hinting At Run For Senate

Rep. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) said Thursday that he is “looking very hard” at running for Barack Obama’s vacant Senate seat and urged the political leadership in Illinois to hold a special election to fill the vacancy rather than allow a gubernatorial appointment.


This may be one of the best candidates we can get for the seat; he is well tested, can raise funds, and is from the suburbs and moderate enough for Illinois at this moment in time.
