Robin Kelly Statement on State of the Union Address

Kelly Attends Address in Washington as Guest of Rep. Bobby Rush

Chicago, IL—(ENEWSPF)–February 12, 2013 – Robin Kelly released the following statement after attending President Obama’s State of the Union address in Washington, DC.  Kelly was invited as a guest of Rep. Bobby Rush, who along with Rep. Danny Davis, recently endorsed her campaign for Congress in IL-02. 

“It was an honor to be in the House chamber for President Obama’s address tonight.  The President made a thoughtful and compelling case for how to solve our country’s most pressing problems.  Seeing the many families of victims of gun violence who were in the House chamber tonight was a powerful, emotional reminder of the importance of making our communities and our children safer. Tonight, our President said, ‘They deserve a vote.’  I look forward to being one of those votes in Congress for his common sense plan to reduce gun violence.”
