Kirk's re-election bid complicated by controversial statements

Author: Editor

Sen. Mark Kirk's reference Thursday to an unmarried Senate colleague and presidential candidate as a "bro with no ho" is the latest in a string of controversial remarks that figure to make an already challenging 2016 re-election bid even more difficult.

While most of Kirk's verbal gaffes have been made in speeches or interviews, his remark Thursday about South Carolina Republican Lindsey Graham was off-the-cuff and presumably meant to be private. Kirk was chatting during a Senate committee vote when his words were picked up by a live microphone.

"He's a bro with no ho," Kirk said, apparently talking to a colleague. "That's what we'd say on the South Side."

Congressman Foster won't run against Kirk, backs Duckworth

Author: Editor

Rep. Bill Foster, of Naperville, announced Friday that he will not challenge Republican Sen. Mark Kirk in 2016 and instead is backing another Democrat, Rep. Tammy Duckworth.

Foster, a physicist, said in a statement he wanted to avoid a "costly and, ultimately unnecessary, primary" election.

He said he will serve as co-chairman of Duckworth's finance committee to help her raise cash for her race.

Senate Republicans block student loan bill

Author: Editor

Senate Republicans on Wednesday blocked legislation aimed at letting people refinance their student loans at lower rates, a pre-ordained outcome that gave Democrats a fresh election-year talking point against the GOP.

The 56-38 vote fell short of the 60 that would have been needed to advance to debate on the measure by Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass. Her bill would have let millions of borrowers, some with years-old debt and interest rates topping 7 percent or more, refinance at today's lower rates.
The bill would have been paid for with the so-called Buffett Rule, which sets minimum tax rates for people making over $1 million.
