Kirk announced last week that he had withdrawn his support for Trump, citing the presumptive Republican presidential nominee's controversial comments and attacks.

"While I oppose the Democratic nominee, Donald Trump's latest statements, in context with past attacks on Hispanics, women and the disabled like me, make it certain that I cannot and will not support my party's nominee for President regardless of the political impact on my candidacy or the Republican Party," the senator said in a statement.
