At least one 2nd District candidate had a good Sunday afternoon, as two congressmen announced their support from Robin Kelly at a press conference in Chicago.
Congressmen Bobby Rush and Danny Davis added their names to a growing list of elected officials supporting Kelly.
“Robin Kelly has the kind of pragmatism that you need to get results in Washington, while never compromising her beliefs like many do," Davis said. "If we are going to stop the NRA in their tracks, and make our communities safe again, Robin Kelly is the right woman for the job.”
Rush and Davis echoed each other, both expressing confidence that she would support President Barack Obama in fighting gun violence.
“I am honored to have the endorsement of Congressmen Rush and Davis, and look forward to working with them and our President to rid our streets of dangerous weapons, and make the second Congressional district a place where people are proud to live, work and raise their families,” said Kelly.
Ald. Anthony Beale, who is also a candidate in the race, has cited Rush and Davis as examples of former Chicago aldermen who are now strong congressmen.
