Congresswoman Tammy Duckworth is making her way to Springfield.  She's the keynote speaker at the Governor's Day Brunch at the Crown Plaza Hotel next Wednesday.  Duckworth is an Army vet who lost both of her legs and partial use of her right arm when her helicopter went down in Iraq back in 2004.  She entered political life after she recovered and served in several roles before being elected to Congress in 2012.  Duckworth will address members of the state's Democratic Party before they head over to the state fair.  That's where Governor Quinn and a full line-up of Democratic leaders and candidates will be speaking.  Republicans will highlight their candidates on Thursday, the 14th.
