Kirk Makes Inspiring Return to Senate

Douglas Graham/CQ Roll Call
Kirk, with the help of Biden and Manchin, returned to the Senate by walking up the steps to the Senate door Thursday.

Many members of Illinois’ House delegation, of which Kirk was a member for 10 years, crossed the Capitol to watch their former colleague make his return. At the top of the stairs, Kirk was met by dozens of hugs.

But more than the love for his return, Kirk, like any sitting senator, was also met by the challenges of the 113th Congress, and the looming legislative fights ahead. And though those may be difficult, they are challenges he is probably happy to face.
