“I recall about seven years ago a 13-year-old boy was shot right across the street from my home and my son was also 13 at the time,” said 53-year-old Kwame Raoul, a Democrat who is currently a state senator from Chicago. “My daughter has witnessed somebody put a gun to someone’s head.

Arne Duncan has been friends with Raoul for more than 40 years.”
