Illinois U.S. Sen Tammy Duckworth joins The 21st to talk about the possibility of being nominated for vice president, the key role the U.S. Senate could play in Illinois state finances, and the growing sense of “quarantine fatigue.”

“My five year old just yesterday said, ‘Mommy, I miss my friends, can I have a playdate?’" Duckworth told Brian Mackey. "And I had to tell her no. It’s all about our health and safety.”
