Illinois Sen. Mark Kirk wants Mitt Romney to win, but not too easily.
"I'm one of those people, also, that thinks that tough primaries make good general election candidacies.
I don't really agree with clearing the field.
I think if the Republican primary is a long-waged battle between Speaker Gingrich and Mitt Romney, it actually means the Republican candidate will be stronger, because the country will talk about Republican issues -- especially fiscal conservatism -- for many more months than would otherwise happen."
That's a strange sentiment to express on Fox News the same day he endorses Romney.
