Sen. Mark Kirk On His ENDA Vote

"In Illinois, we all measure ourselves against the career of Abraham Lincoln and think about the legacy that that means. I would say that I measure myself against Everett Dirksen and his support for the 1964 Civil Rights Act as Republican leadership as the best moment in his career. [With] this legislation, I’m very proud to do it in the tradition of Illinois’ Dirksen and Lincoln." - Sen. Mark Kirk (R-IL), speaking yesterday after voting for ENDA in a Senate committee.
