News sources have said the opposite about Kirk. The leaked cell phone video of Kirk not being able to pronounce vowels says plenty. I wish he never had a stroke and was at 100% but his health says I can't do my job. This man had 2 pieces of dead brain removed 2 days after his stroke. Please Google! Kirk's people said he has a slight voice issue and his right side is affected but the sad video says the truth. The clip was dated April 11 so he has had lots of therapy already. I wish you the best Mark, I wish you were 100% but we need representation now. We need both Senate votes. God Bless you.
