GOP Senator Puts Out Ad Touting His Refusal to Endorse Trump

A sitting Republican senator has released a campaign ad today touting the fact that he has refused to support the nominee of his own party.

Mark Kirk is in a tight race for reelection, and his new campaign ad goes through his independence streak––from supporting a vote on Merrick Garland to how he “bucked his party to say Donald Trump is not fit to be Commander-in-Chief.”

Kirk made some big news last month when he said he can’t bring himself to support Trump while Democratic opponent Tammy Duckworth had been attacking him for not distancing himself from Trump.

Now the only question is if any of Kirk’s Republican colleagues will follow suit and actually wear their refusal to endorse him as a badge of honor.

You can watch the ad above.
