WASHINGTON--Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell is making his fourth visit to Illinois on Friday to help GOP Senate candidate Rep. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) raise money for the November election. McConnell is appearing in west suburban St. Charles.

Kirk is stumping Friday in McHenry and Kane Counties: Here's what supporters were told...


....."Mark Kirk will be in McHenry County tomorrow morning (Friday, Sept. 17) for a meet-and-greet at the Republican Party Headquarters in Crystal Lake from 7:30-9:00 AM. We'll have coffee, ,juice and donuts, so come on by if you can. Pam Althoff, Brian Sager and I have scheduled a very busy, but productive, morning for the Congressman. After greeting McHenry County residents he will meet from 9-10 with Presidents of all of the local Chambers of Commerce, where he will talk about his "Small Business Bill of Rights." You all have this document. Read it again; its really good stuff. From 10:30-11:30, Congressman Kirk will be meeting with local farmers at the County Farm Bureau building in Woodstock. He will speak to this large group of farmers about his stance on farming and agricultural issues. You should all also have his "Farmers for Kirk" document. It is equally great. From there, we will drive to Cary, where Mark Kirk will speak with executives at Sage Products, one of the county's largest employers. After speaking with leaders he will tour the facility.

He has a similarly busy afternoon and evening in Kane County.
