The Democratic nominee to take over former Rep. Jesse L. Jackson Jr.'s House seat vowed in her Tuesday evening victory speech to tackle gun-related violence and take a leadership role in the national debate over gun control.
The Democratic primary win of Robin Kelly – whose signature issue is gun control — is a mandate for the federal government to tighten restrictions on Second Amendment rights, said Vice President Joe Biden.
Tuesday's primary for Chicago-area Democrats voting to replace former Rep. Jesse L. Jackson Jr. could be the first indication of whether gun control will take center stage in next year's congressional races.
Ripples from the deadly shootings in Connecticut are already affecting political campaigns, including a special congressional election in Illinois where a gun rights supporter is calling for tighter gun controls as part of her agenda.
"Their days of holding our country hostage are coming to an end," she said, according to AP.
"We were on the right side of the [gun] issue and our message resonated," Ms. Kelly said, according to the AP report.
