Following the health care bill's passage, several states want the bill declared unconstitutional -- and GOP'ers want Illinois' AG Lisa Madigan to join in the fight.
So a few state reps sent her a letter.
Several commenters on the post say Kirk's making the right decision to stear clear.
"None of the MOCs who signed on to the letter have a tough race in November," noted Team Sleep. "Kirk most certainly does."
And from Rob N.: "So the Republicans who keep whining about the state’s red ink want the state’s Attorney General to waste the state’s money tilting at the GOP’s anti-Obama windmills? I realize the GOP will simply oppose Obama no matter what but cognitive dissonance much?
"The “ObamaCare” legislation [Obama] just signed is very much like policies the GOP of not-so-long-ago proposed as it is. Even Kirk’s titular campaign lead John Cornyn is saying the GOP shouldn’t repeal all of it just some ambiguous “some of it” … y’know, just the parts the teabaggerazzi hate … (which seems to be all of it)."
