8th District Watch – Wall Street Journal Quotes “Tea Party Candidate” Joe Walsh

Here’s what appeared in the Wall Street Journal about 8th Congressional District Repubublican candidate Joe Walsh Saturday:

“The Tea Party movement boasts of at least one primary victory so far. Illinois venture capitalist Joe Walsh won a six-way contest on Feb. 2 to be the party’s nominee against well-funded incumbent Democratic Rep. Melissa Bean in a suburban Chicago swing district.

“‘I ran as a Tea Party candidate in the primary, and I’m going to run as a Tea Party candidate in the general,’ said Mr. Walsh, who spoke in Nashville. He said he is the candidate for voters who are ‘pissed off, scared, and angry’ at Washington.”
