Mark Kirk: Too climate-changey for the Republicans?

Mark Kirk not's running for the Senate, Chris Cillizza reports. The reasoning really doesn't speak well to the near-future of the state Republican party. Time to get to know hashtag-obsessed IL GOP chair Andy McKenna. Seriously, he loves him some Twitter (h/t Archpundit).


"Though McKenna stopped short of proposing a slating process for endorsing candidates for statewide office as Democrats have done in the past, he said 'where possible, both the Republican organizations and donors are going to try to coalesce around candidates they feel can get the job done.'"

...and, as I was about to post, Cillizza walked back his post, as it seems national Republicans may want a shot at actually winning an Illinois election.

Update: According to Greg Hinz, Kirk and McKenna are going to hug it out.
