RNC Chairman Statement on Democrats Blocking Illinois Special Election

/PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Robert M. "Mike" Duncan released the following statement on Monday.

"It's extremely disappointing that Democratic leaders in Illinois are ignoring bipartisan calls for a special election to fill President-elect Barack Obama's Senate seat. Considering the scandal surrounding Governor Rod Blagojevich's administration, a special election is the only way to credibly fill the seat. I hope that Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan puts good government before partisan politics, and will heed Senator Durbin's call for a special election."
