Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Sunday that Senator Mark Kirk's re-election was a top priority for Republicans across the nation. McConnell spoke at the Westin Hotel in Wheeling where he was helping Kirk raise funds for his race against his likely opponent, Rep. Tammy Duckworth of Hoffman Estates. "Mark Kirk's re-election is a top priority or I wouldn't be here on a Sunday afternoon," McConnell said. "It's important to us, it's important to the country and it's important to the people of Illinois."
