Dick Durbin is the senior Senator for Illinois and the Majority Whip.
The news comes a day after Blagojevich's defense team requested to subpoena President Barack Obama. Redcated portions of that document were released, apparently by accident.
"This is not just broadway Bank," Durbin said, referring to "a sad economy" that's affected community banks across the nation.
Asked how Giannoulias was faring, Durbin said "he's moving in the right direction."
Sen. Durbin is Giannoulias' campaign chairman. The FDIC is widely expected to shutter Broadway Bank today.
