“I congratulate Mark Kirk for his victory in the Illinois Republican Senate primary election. With Congressman Kirk as our nominee, the Republican Party has a real opportunity to pick up the President’s former Senate seat in the blue state of Illinois.
“In contrast, Mark Kirk’s Democrat challenger, Alexi Giannoulias, is a product of the ethically-tainted political machine in Chicago that was run by disgraced Governor Rod Blagojevich. As the state’s first term Treasurer, Giannoulias has eagerly endorsed his party’s out-of-control spending agenda in Washington, and he has failed to reject the Obama Administration’s plans to detain and try terrorists on American soil.
“As we witnessed in Massachusetts last month, Republican, Independent, and Democrat voters are tired of the Democrats’ failed tax-and-spend policies, and they are looking for real leaders who will represent their best interests in Washington. I look forward to serving with Mark Kirk in the United States Senate.”
