(Video) Kirk returns to DC and climbs the steps of the Capitol
Nearly a year after suffering from a major stroke, Sen. Mark Kirk (R-IL) made an emotional return to the Capitol building. Assisted by Democratic Senators Dick Durbin of Illinois and Joe Manchin of West Virginia--along with Chicago native and Senate Sergeant-At-Arms Terry Gainer and Joe Biden, Kirk walked up the 45 stairs of the Capitol--as the other members of the upper chamber cheered.
