In a joint Chicago Tribune interview with Democratic Party opponent Tammy Duckworth, Congressman Joe Walsh admitted the need for balance.
That’s what the subhead says in the top story in the Chicago Tribune today.
The direct quote was “that more than once he has gotten ‘a little ahead of myself with my language’ during public meetings with constituents.”
In other news I picked up this past week, the Democrats started reapportionment for Congress by drawing the 8th District for Tammy Duckworth.
That means the Democrats think he is the biggest threat.
That was borne out by Governor Pat Quinn’s criticism of Walsh as “the worst congressman in America.”
In response, according to AP, “Walsh’s campaign says Quinn is the nation’s worst governor and should focus on the state’s budget problems.”
The Tribune did have enough sense of balance to include Walsh’s contention there is media bias against him. It’s at the end of the article.
Maybe Quinn has figured out the Walsh may run against himfor Governor.
Listen to the speech Walsh gaveto the Illinois Republican Party Convention to standing applause.
A left-leaning poll, Public Policy Polling, shows Duckworth leading Walsh 51-39-10.
