(Springfield, IL) — U.S. Senator Mark Kirk is under fire over comments made about challenger Tammy Duckworth’s family. The Republican questioned the military service of his Democratic opponent’s parents during a televised debate last night at the University of Illinois at Springfield.
The comment immediately received backlash online, with some calling the remark racist. The debate was sponsored by the “State Journal-Register,” WMAY 970-AM and WICS-TV.
