How Can Illinois GOP Vote For Mark Kirk? (UPDATED)

January 25, 2010

Chicago Breaking News is reporting that Republican Mark Kirk is leading the Ilinois GOP primary for US Senate, by a wide margin.

Kirk, a five-term North Shore congressman, holds a commanding advantage over Hinsdale businessman Patrick Hughes, 47 percent to 8 percent. None of the four other contenders in the GOP race — Kathleen Thomas, Don Lowery, John Arrington or Andy Martin — had more than 3 percent.

Correction: Mark Kirk voted for Progressive-stimulus.

Mark Kirk voted for Cap and Trade, without reading it.

Mark Kirk is a drug war radical.

Is Mark Kirk really the best Illinois Republicans can do?

UPDATE: Here are some clips of Conservative Patrick Hughes, the distant competitor behind Mark Kirk.

    This is absolutely the right question to be asking. Most Illinois voters don’t know Kirk’s record. Mark Kirk is a big government, liberal Republican that has voted against just about every constitutional right we have.
