As Robin Kelly (D-DailyKos) the Chicago Machine candidate  hides from debates and runs out the clock while the Chicago media twiddles its thumbs over her disappearance and ethics issues, Barack Obama has endorsed Kelly, via her Facebook page:

Meanwhile Paul McKinley is appearing at numerous events in the district, going on radio, and fighting against the Machine.  He also has picked up the endorsement of the Gun Owners of America.
