Sen. Mark Kirk: Updates his condition in first video since his stroke

| No Comments


Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.)--not heard from himself since his stroke in January--speaks out for the first time in a video released Tuesday by his office. The video features scenes of Kirk at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago learning to walk and direct shot of Kirk talking about how anxious he is to get back to work in the Senate--and his goal of being able to walk those 45 steps to his office.

Sun-Times political reporter Abdon M. Pallasch has the story HERE.
