Kirk Won't Campaign For Fellow Republican Oberweis, Says He Wants To ''Protect'' Relationship With Durbin

Republican U.S. Senator Mark Kirk says he will not be campaigning in support of the GOP nominee for the state’s other Senate seat. 


Kirk tells the Chicago Sun-Times that he wants to “protect” his relationship with Democratic incumbent Dick Durbin, and so he won’t be hitting the stump for Jim Oberweis. 


Kirk says he doesn’t want to engage in, quote, a “partisan jihad” that will jeopardize his ability to work with Durbin on issues of importance to the state.
