Capitol Fax Blog’s Rich Miller offers a viewpoint different from former Mike Madigan employee, now retired University of Illinois at Springfield Professor Kent Redfield about Joe Walsh’s chances of re-election.
Redfield told the Daily Herald that Walsh would have “a huge problem” because of the Chicago Sun-Times delinquent child support story.
Miller makes another observation:
“There is, however, another dynamic not explored here. Many die-hard Republican adherents have adopted a “victimization” mentality. Media hits are successfully brushed aside as the ‘lamestream media’ working on behalf of liberal Democrats. That attitude, if successfully mined, is Walsh’s clearest path to victory. The line will be that he stuck up for his principles and was then kneecapped by the liberals.”
