This is old news. Kirk was on WLS 890AM and announced his intentions to run for Senate then. This hopefully will be a start in changing Illinois back to a state where our Senators speak common sense and for the voters. Next, we have to get rid of Senator Pol Pot rant and get someone who is truly for the citizens of Illinois. One down, one to go!
