The Only Reason Kirk Is Meeting With Garland Is Because.....

he knows he is in trouble keeping his Senate seat against Tammy Duckworth. He's thinking that Illinois voters will think he's a different kind of Repug. But he isn't. The Dems will pick up a Senate seat in Illinois.

1. So the HRC endorsement was for this reason, as some suspected.

(HRC as in Human Rights Campaign)

4. All the best to Tammy.

She is also a SD who has endorsed Hillary, who was recently in Chicago for a fundraiser, at which Tammy was present. http://chicago.suntimes.com/columnists/hillary-clinton-in-chicago-for-fundraiser-today/

At least part of those monies will undoubtedly go towards electing Tammy in November. Hillary works hard for down-ticket Dems.

5. You are probably correct.

 

Kirk and his supporters went after Duckworth before and made a total ass of himself. With Rahmbo on the ropes so to speak,and being a Presidential Election Cycle,Kirk is looking for any excuse to stay viable. Hopefully Chuck Schumer does not screw this up.

7. He has tried to moderate a lot of

his views recently. He has done the same thing on abortion.

He knows the Illinois voters are sick and tired of republicans at all levels. Rauner is destroying our state.

8. He's running scared and he should be.

Tammy Duckworth is enormously popular. Still, he did the right thing, even if it was for the wrong (or at the very least, suspect) reasons.

9. Many times he has broken rank

....and voted with the Democrats. I'm not supporting him but I'm also not going to vilify him.
