ATTENTION DAYBOOK/ASSIGNMENT EDITORS
ANNOUNCEMENT OF WEDNESDAY MORNING NEWS CONFERENCE IN CHICAGO
Martin will expose that Kirk’s East Peoria last minute desperation “event” was only announced Monday afternoon (January 11th)
Martin says that Kirk is fleeing a televised confrontation with Martin after Kirk promised WLS-TV he would appear
Martin promises to drop an anti-Kirk “Bunker Buster” in the Channel 7 studio; “He can run, but he can’t hide,” Andy says
Would Mark Kirk qualify as one of Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s “girly men” for ducking the Channel 7 debate?
(CHICAGO)(January 13, 2010) Republican U. S. Senate candidate and insurgent "Internet Powerhouse" Andy Martin will hold a Chicago news conference Wednesday morning, January 13th in front of 190 N. State Street to accuse Mark Kirk fleeing the City of Chicago to avoid debating his opponents.
“Illinois, the home of ‘Lincoln-Douglas debates,’ has now become the fly-over residence of ‘Cut and Run Kirk.’ What is the Kirkster afraid of? Little old me?
“Well I have news for Mr. Kirk. Thursday night we are going to drop a Bunker Buster in the WLS-TV studio. Kirk won’t be there to respond. He ought to be.
“But just so Kirk won’t forget he has a primary, and I am his principal opponent, I plan to dog Kirk in East Peoria. We are trying to organize a demonstration at the Embassy Suites Hotel in East Peoria where Kirk is hiding out.
“I am a little surprised that the county chairmen are indulging Kirk’s ‘escape from Chicago.’ The last time I checked the law, harboring a deserter was almost as bad as desertion. Kirk is a deserter. Are the county chairmen going to join hands and form a protective cordon around Kirk when my supporters approach the little critter and try to ask him why he is ‘hiding out’ in East Peoria?
“Kirk agreed to participate in the WLS-TV debate, and then he reneged. And this man wants to lead the Republican Party in November? The Democrats are watching Kirk. ‘See Mark run.’
“On one level, Kirk’s ‘escape’ is sad. Kirk is over his head in statewide politics. He ran a liberal political shop on the North Shore, but he has no business using downstate precinct committeemen as a beard for his cowardice. What a strategy.
“On the other hand, Kirk is an embarrassment to the people that chose him and sought to make him their standard bearer. Did the Chicago Tribune and Sun-Times know what a scardy cat Kirk is? Kirk is embarrassing his supporters by fleeing the city to avoid the televised debate,” Martin will charge at his news conference. “From ‘Lincoln-Douglas’ to ‘Cut and Run Kirk.’ No wonder this state is in such sad shape. The political establishment is rotten to the core.
“I am the only Republican for U. S. Senator who is ‘Illinois Tough.’ I am the only candidate who is ready to lead Republicans against the Democratic Party in November. No one believes I am afraid of the opposition. Quite the opposite. My campaign strikes fear in the heart of the Democrats. Liberals are afraid they will have to face me instead of ‘Cut and Run Kirk.’”
