Kirk Won't Campaign for Durbin Challenger

Sen. Mark Kirk (R-IL) ruled out campaigning for U.S. Senate nominee Jim Oberweis (R), saying he would rather "protect" his relationship with Sen. Dick Durbin D-Ill. and not launch a "partisan jihad," the Chicago Sun Times reports.

Said Kirk: "I'm going to be protecting my relationship with Dick and not launching into a partisan jihad that hurts our partnership to both pull together for Illinois."
