As Sargent points out, several Democratic candidates favor keeping all the tax cuts. But not Giannoulias. The new site argues:

Congress is debating whether to doll out another $700 billion in tax breaks for the wealthiest 2% of Americans. Instead of paying down the debt, creating jobs or investing in our education system, this money would simply line the pockets of a select few

Giannoulias campaign did not immediately respond to request for comment.

The TPM Poll Average for this race shows Republican Mark Kirk leading Giannoulias 41.3%-40.0%.
