Add Sen. Mark Kirk (R-IL) to the list of dignitaries who will not attend the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.

Republicans like Kirk, who are involved in difficult re-election fights, have been advised by the party to consider skipping the convention.  They’re fearful that attending a contested convention, pitting Donald Trump against Ted Cruz, could hurt their re-election chances.
