CHICAGO – Republican U.S. Senator Mark Kirk wants Illinois Hispanic voters to know that he "does not support Trump" in a new ad rolling out Wednesday on Telemundo and Univision.

In Spanish, Kirk condemns the top of his own party ticket, saying in the ad that when Trump has said bad things about immigrants, "I have spoken out against him."

He also says he has worked with Democrats to fight gang violence.  Kirk is being challenged by Democrat Congresswoman Tammy Duckworth in November.

  1. That’s okay, I don’t support Kirk and it has NOTHING to do with his not supporting Trump.
    It has nothing to do with the bad things Kirk says either; it has everything to do with his voting record, where he stands on the issues, and his ability to throw his colleagues under the bus when it suits his purpose.
    I received an automated poll call from the Kirk camp a couple of weeks ago asking if I was voting for him or Duckworth. I pressed 3 for neither. Then it went on to ask if Kirk endorsed Trump would that change my vote, pressed 1 for nope. The decision to not vote for Kirk happened long before Trump’s nomination.

  2. I live in Kirk’s congressional district, and I’ve never voted for him. If I wanted to vote for a candidate who is pro-abortion, pro-gun control, pro-tax increases, and pro-spending increases, I’d vote for the Democrat. The Democrats, he defeated, were more honest, when they said that they were liberal.

  3. I sent him a letter asking him to represent U.S. citizens instead of illegal aliens. I also told him his support for Chicago’s sanctuary policy aids criminals and hurts law enforcement. He did not respond. He might as well be a Democrat.

  4. I emailed Kirk, at least three times, between 2006 & ’08, and I said, “Why are you a Republican, although you’re pro-choice, pro-gun control, pro-spending increases, and pro-illegal alien?” I didn’t get a response. I emailed at least three of his aides, and I asked them why he’s a Republican. None of them responded.
