(Springfield, IL) — U.S. Senator Mark Kirk is under fire over comments made about challenger Tammy Duckworth’s family. The Republican questioned the military service of his Democratic opponent’s parents during a televised debate last night at the University of Illinois at Springfield.
The comment immediately received backlash online, with some calling the remark racist.
