Senator Mark Kirk Fundraising Off Michelle Obama Rumor

One of our readers sent us over this photo of a fundraising letter they received over the weekend from United States Senator Mark Kirk.  

The Senator's team is using the 'rumor' of First Lady Michelle Obama possibly running for his US Senate Seat in 2016 as a fundraising device. And...a good one at that!  He points out the similarities between what Michelle Obama has said to what was said about Hillary Clinton before she ran for US Senate from New York.

From the letter:
I'm not one to believe rumors or engage in political gossip, but when it comes to defending the Illinois Senate seat that I'm honored to hold, I take any and all potential threads seriously...all Illinois Republicans should.   
While the press and rumor mills ponder the "will she or won't she?" question with regard to Michelle Obama...and the circumstances (and denials) are reminiscent of 1999 when First Lady Hillary Clinton was the subject of whirlwind speculation about a run for the United State Senate...we must build up my campaign so we can vigorously defend this seat -- no matter whose name is on the ballot on the Democrat side.
