Democrats who think they will be able to cram their agenda through a lame-duck session of Congress may simply be guaranteeing some Republican victories in November. Three Republican Senate candidates – Christine O’Donnell in Delaware, Mark Kirk in Illinois lame,duck,session,congress,republicans,o'donnell,kirkand John Raese in Delaware – who would join Congress immediately after the election are pointing out the havoc their opponents could wreak in a lame-duck session, The Hill reports.

Kirk, who is locked in a close battle with Democrat Alexi Giannoulias for President Obama’s former Senate seat, says he’ll do all he can to block the Democrats in a lame-duck session.

“The special election creates a remarkable opportunity,” he says in a video on his campaign’s website. “Should we win it, I would become the 42nd Republican senator, with the opportunity to put the brakes on any lame-duck overreach.”
