[WASHINGTON, DC] - U.S. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) today issued the following statement after President-elect Barack Obama announced his decision to resign his Senate seat this weekend.

"No Senator in our history has made such an impact on America in so short a time.

It has been an honor to call Barack Obama my Senate colleague and work closely with him for our state and nation.

Though he will no longer be by my side in the Senate, I will be by his side as he leads our nation forward."
