1) Kirk Is In
2) Kirk Is Not In
3) Repeat

"Illinois Rep. Mark Kirk (R) will not run for the open seat of Sen. Roland Burris (D) in 2010, a stunning reversal from just 48 hours ago when Kirk signaled to National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman John Cornyn (Texas) that he would make the race. Kirk's decision, a blow to Senate Republicans' chances in Illinois, came in the wake of Burris' formal retirement this afternoon."

"Update, 4:17 p.m.: Although Kirk has already told several national Republicans today that he will not run for the Senate, there is an ongoing effort now to convince him to re-think that decision, according to several sources close to the discussions."
Kirk Opts Out of Senate Race (Or Maybe He Doesn't)?

Republican leadership in action!
Also, Joe Birkett claims Dillard mis-spoke or was taken out of context about being pleased to possibly work with Lisa Madigan. This after Birkett stated that anyone can be beat. Of course, he can't be beat and he already lost to Lisa.
