Mark Kirk statement

| 2 Comments


WASHINGTON - Congressman Mark Kirk released the following statement today:

"Illinois is sorely in need of strong, independent leaders who will put the
public interest above their own and bring pride back to the Land of Lincoln. We
must set our country on a path of reform and fiscal sanity. The coming election
offers an opportunity to correct our course and set a higher standard for
Illinois.

"I will announce my intentions regarding statewide office very soon."
