President Obama, in town for an Alexi Giannoulias fundraiser
yesterday, had some kind words for the Democratic U.S. Senate nominee.
“He’s comfortable in his own skin,” the president told a group of
supporters. “He doesn’t shift with the wind. He doesn’t pretend to be
something that he’s not.”
GOP candidate for the U.S. Senate Mark Kirk released a new ad in which he highlights his downstate roots and “mainstream Illinois values.” What values does he mean, exactly? Could Kirk be referring to his opposition to gay marriage? According to recent data, support for gay marriage among Illinoisans is growing at a rapid pace.
