In a first for Chicago politics, Rev. Willie Wilson and a group of Westside ministers Monday endorsed GOP senate candidate Mark Kirk.
"It's about the man, not the party," the group said in a statement.
Rev. Wilson, traditionally affiliated with Democratic causes, says he's more Independent these days.
"I've been trying to supprt people who will help our community," Wilson said, speaking from the Holy Corinthian Baptist Church in Maywood.
