Video shows Sen. Kirk's progress from stroke

CHICAGO -- U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk, who suffered a stroke in January, released a second video message Sunday showing improved mobility and speech and detailing his work to find a replacement for U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald.

"I wanted to make sure we could update the people of Illinois on my progress against this stroke," Mr. Kirk, 52, said in the video. "The progress I have made has been very encouraging -- learning to walk again and improving my speaking skills."

The three-minute video features footage of the Republican walking on a treadmill and up stairs under the close supervision of a rehabilitation specialist but without a cane he had previously used.
