Tammy Duckworth is glad to be back working for the entire population of Illinois.
She has just completed her first three months as a U.S. Senator, following her defeat of Republican incumbent Mark Kirk last November.
Duckworth spent three years as director of the Illinois Department of Veterans Affairs before moving to Washington D.C. as Assistant Secretary for Veterans Affairs under President Obama. She returned to Illinois in late 2011 and won the Illinois 8th District U.S. House seat the following year.
