Sweet: Dick Durbin invites Ray LaHood to co-host Illinois breakfast.

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--The Illinois breakfast is a proud tradition here. Every Thursday when the Senate is in session, the Senators, for years--no matter who--host a morning session for any Illinoisan who shows up.

Sen. Dick Durbin has been carrying the ball, since for months now, Sen. Barack Obama has been skipping the breakfasts because he has been on the Democratic presidential campaign trail.

So for the first time, a House member is invited to co-host. And that's Rep. Ray LaHood, Downstate Republican.
