A press release from Libertarian candidate for State Comptroller Julie Fox about former Republican Congressman Joe Walsh’s endorsement:
Former Congressman Joe Walsh Endorses Julie Fox For Comptroller
Julie Fox, Libertarian Candidate for Illinois Comptroller, announced today the formal campaign endorsement of Joe Walsh, former U.S. Congressman from the Illinois 8th Congressional District.
Ms. Fox, a Certified Public Accountant from Dundee, IL was thrilled with the news.
Upon hearing that Congressman Walsh had endorsed her over her two major party opponents,
Ms. Fox said,
“The Congressman believes as I do, that the Comptroller, the Chief Financial Officer of the state, should at a minimum be an accountant.
“After all, we expect our Attorney General to be a lawyer, don’t we?
“Why would we even think of electing someone untrained in the complex management of money to handle such an important task?”
Congressman Walsh, in deciding to give his endorsement said,
“Julie’s somebody everyone should get excited about.
“She’s not a career politician; she’s different from the others.
“As the only CPA in the race she’s actually qualified for the job.
“She’s running for the office because she’s ticked off about the condition of the state’s financial condition, and she actually wants to do something about it.
“That’s pretty impressive.”
Ms. Fox is the mother of two adult children, holds two science degrees, has been an accountant for 26 years, and a Certified Public Accountant since 1995.
Congressman Walsh won his congressional seat in 2010 as a Tea Party favorite Republican. He was defeated by Democrat Tammy Duckworth when the Democrat controlled legislature restructured the 8th Congressional District in its favor. He now hosts a nightly call-in radio show on WIND AM 560 “The Answer”, which is broadcast in both the Chicago and New York markets.
