"Tammy is looking forward to engaging in a series of vigorous debates with Senator Kirk and discussing their respective visions for this state," Duckworth campaign manager Kaitlin Fahey said in a statement. "Tammy is focused on creating economic opportunity and security for working families and small businesses, and is looking forward to holding Senator Kirk accountable for his record of supporting tax loopholes companies use to ship jobs overseas, as well as the Republican Ryan budget -- which would raise taxes on middle-class families by an average of $2,000 to pay for a tax cut for millionaires and billionaires."
