U.S. Senate candidate remembers Lincoln-Douglas debates

Posted by wlpo on August 21, 2010

The Republican candidate running for President Barack Obama’s former U.S. Senate seat wanted to relive the Lincoln-Douglas Debate in Ottawa with a debate against his Democratic opponent.

But instead, U.S. Congressman Mark Kirk appeared at Washington Park on the anniversary of the debate and was on-hand for the La Salle County G-O-P Headquarters grand opening Saturday.

Kirk says he backs small businesses and is pushing a small business bill of rights.

He wants to keep ballots secret in union elections, allow you to purchase health insurance from any where in the county, and lawsuit reform.

He faces State Treasurer Alexi Giannoulias in the November election.
