CHICAGO (CBS) — Democratic U.S. Senator Dick Durbin and his Republican challenger Jim Oberweis verbally tangled over subjects ranging from gun violence and immigration to ethics in a meeting before the Tribune Editorial Board.
WBBM Political Editor Craig Dellimore reports Republican State Senator Jim Oberweis accused Dick Durbin of trying to use the IRS to investigate a conservative group. Durbin actually thinks all super PACs should be scrutinized.
Durbin supports universal background checks for background sales, but Oberweis told the Tribune Editorial Board that he is not convinced it would be effective.
