Durbin thanked Kirk for Oberweis statement

Friday, Mar 28, 2014

* US Sen. Dick Durbin said he called Sen. Mark Kirk after Kirk said he would preserve his relationship with Durbin by not campaigning for Republican Senate nominee Jim Oberweis

“You know, a lot of people have an image of Washington as a place of two parties at war,” Durbin said. “Mark Kirk and I have really tried to find ways to work together. I think that’s good for the state. t’s really good for our country. We do have a friendship and a partnership doing a lot of things together. Oh, we’re gonna disagree on some votes, that’s for sure. But we really try to accentuate the positive. His statement this week was very nice. I called him and thanked him.”

Kirk’s office has since said he’ll be endorsing the entire Republican ticket, but no campaigning for Oberweis has been scheduled.

That’ll make some heads explode.

    Don’t worry. “Oberweis/Rauner” will be heard..,

    So far, it looks like Oberweis has wisely turned the other cheek. Keep swiping at Oberweis, however, and it will be hard to fault him for eventually swiping back.

    Play nice, gentlemen. Lest ye both screw things up for your entire ticket.

    AS Charles Barkley would say, “that’s tearable.”
