SHARE VIDEO: Kirk tells delegates “I really wish I could be with you today”

CLEARWATER, FL. – U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.), still recovering from his stroke, made a surprise appearance Tuesday by video at Illinois Republican breakfast, touting the party’s chances this fall.

The minute-long video had Kirk, dressed in a light blue oxford shirt, sitting in front of a book case.

Kirk thanked state GOP chief Pat Brady, Senate Minority Leader Christine Radogno (R-Lemont) and House Minority Leader Tom Cross (R-Oswego) “for putting together such a strong team.”

“I really wish I could be with you today,” Kirk said, describing this year’s campaign as “an exciting moment.”

“This has got to be one of the most important elections we’ve ever had to return fiscally responsible leadership to Washington,” he said in the recording, which triggered a standing applause from a few hundred delegates.
