The Human Rights Campaign has rescinded its endorsement of Sen. Mark Kirk (IL). What on earth was Chad Griffin thinking in the first place? While Kirk is LGBT friendly he is still a Republican. We need Democratic control of the Senate if Hillary Clinton (I assume Clinton will go on to win) is going to shape the Supreme Court.
HRC’s action came as a result of disparaging comments made by Kirk about the mixed racial heritage of his opponent, Rep. Tammy Duckworth. The Real Clear Politics average has Duckworth ahead by seven points.
