Democratic congressional candidate Robin Kelly today gained the support of U.S. Rep.
Kelly, a former state lawmaker from Matteson, previously got the backing of U.S. Reps.
"It's hard to say that gun violence prevention isn't a top priority in our country and certainly for the president, who is fully engaged in this issue," Schakowsky, a North Shore congresswoman, told reporters in a conference call. "Robin Kelly is a leader on this issue. We need her in Congress."
