Kirk again trails Duckworth in fundraising for US Senate bid




CHICAGO — U.S. Rep. Tammy Duckworth outraised Illinois Republican U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk for the fourth consecutive quarter, giving her a multimillion-dollar cash advantage in a race that could help determine whether Democrats retake control of the Senate.

Kirk’s campaign said late Friday he raised more than $1 million between April and June, finishing with $3.1 million in his campaign fund.

Duckworth raised $2.7 million during the same period and ended the second quarter with $5.5 million cash on hand, her campaign said earlier last week.

    And, I don’t encourage anyone to give him anything, either, not even a VOTE.
