CHICAGO  — Democratic U.S. Sen. Tammy Duckworth took to Twitter to announce plans to run for a second term in 2022.

In a brief tweet on Tuesday, Duckworth claimed her work for Illinois families and veterans isn’t finished. Duckworth, who turns 53 on Friday, is launching her re-election bid without a prominent Illinois Republican actively mounting a challenge of her.

After serving two terms in the House from a suburban Chicago district, Duckworth in 2016 defeated Republican Sen. Mark Kirk.

Duckworth’s tweet contained a fundraising link. She will have a Wednesday launch fundraiser headlining Sen. Dick Durbin and former 2020 Democratic presidential contenders Senators Cory Booker of New Jersey, Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.
