Alexi Hides, Kirk Speaks out on Economy

Alexi's ducking interviews and sneaking off for fundraising in Canada during the Blago trial--he's been subpoenaed, based on conversations he neglected to mention for months. And then there are his own embellishments he doesn't want to have to explain.

CNBC with a pretty fair take on Kirk's military record. And a wide-ranging interview with Kirk (video) primarily on the economy with Fox Chicago.

More. Via Powerline, Financial Times:
In the past few days polls have shown Republican challengers taking the lead over previously safe Democratic incumbents, such as Barbara Boxer in California and Russ Feingold in Wisconsin.
