Rep. Rush, Sen. Kirk to tour Englewood together
Congressman Rush and Senator Kirk are touring the Englewood neighborhood together.
Today’s tour comes as a peace gesture after Rush criticized Kirk back in May for wanting to jail every member of a notorious Chicago gang.
Rush had called the notion an “elitist white boy solution” to Chicago’s crime problems.
Kirk says he still stands by his earlier statements.
The two will hold a news conference after the tour to discuss urban violence and economic growth.
