Kirk: Has anyone laughed at you today because you're from Illinois? 

Moderate Rep. Mark Kirk, R-Ill., writes potential donors to his Senate campaign, clearly pitching for tea-party support:

Are you worried about this country in a way you haven’t been before? Has someone laughed at you because you are from Illinois?

And later:

We’re up against ACORN/SEIU, the Trial Lawyers and – they have millions to keep Congress approving more taxes and government spending.  We won in Massachusettes, New Jersey and Virginia – but to win in Illinois, we have to run a huge campaign against powerful groups that want to keep expanding the government’s control.

In recent days, the Congress approved 12 new federal taxes and deep cuts to health care for seniors on Medicare – along with orders to hire 16,000 more IRS agents.  Iran is accelerating its nuclear program as key allies in the Middle East are blasted by our government. 

I am for lower taxes, less spending and strong support for countries that stand with America.  If you agree, now is the time to make the greatest difference in the future of our country.

Corruption, taxes and spending have never had better years than 2010...

Kirk is running against Alexi Giannoulias, the state's Democratic treasurer and a close personal friend of President Obama.
