Walsh Campaigning in New 14th Congressional District

Congressman Joe Walsh prepares to exchange a high five with a boy at Harvard's Milk Day Parade.

It is unclear where Congressman Joe Walsh will run for re-election.  It is clear he will run somewhere.

Joe Walsh shakes hands with an older gentleman at Harvard's Milk Day Parade.

But, he has announced that he will run for re-election.

Joe Walsh plunks himself in the middle of a Milk Day Parade family for a photo op.

Walsh now shares McHenry County with veteran Congressman Don Manzullo.

His district includes the townships on the northern tier of McHenry County from Hebron east.

 

A Coast Guard Veteran of the USS Mohawk shakes Joe Walsh's hand.

But, he was in Harvard’s Milk Day Parade.

An Illinois State University Red Bird fan and Joe Walsh joke around.

Justifiable since it is an agricultural-centered celebration and Walsh represents lots of farmland in northern McHenry County.

Then, last week, Rockford Foresters Baseball Team President Joe Stefani announced that Walsh and Congressman Bobby Schilling would be honored guests at the Tea Party baseball game on July 9th.

You can bet that Rockford TV will be filming, because Schilling has been assigned the City of Rockford under the Illinois Democrats’ remap.

When I lived at 360 S. Madison Street in Woodstock, we could get Rockford TV. Surely, Harvard and Marengo can as well.

All have been drawn into the new 14th Congressional District.

Then comes a press release from the Walsh campaign announcing 4th of July parades in which Walsh will participate.

While reading it below figure out which parades would influence people in the new 14th District:
