From the campaign to reelect Rep. Joe Walsh (R, Illinois 8th District)…
After Joe and Tammy finally sat down for their first debate, what we already knew became even more clear: Tammy Duckworth is out of touch with the voters of the 8th Congressional District, and has no interest in their opinions. Duckworth quipped, “There’s not been a ‘crackpot’ Tea Party idea that he hasn’t embraced.” Even moderator Rick Pearson of the Tribune intervened to ask if she really meant “crackpot”, and Duckworth doubled down to say “absolutely!”
It’s no wonder NBC called Joe Walsh the winner of the debate and stated, “Walsh used his superior rhetorical and public speaking skills to portray himself as a reasonable, fiscally-responsible congressman, and Duckworth as a servant of the special interests.”
Congressman Walsh painted a clear picture for Duckworth and the Democratic Party this past Friday night; it’s going to take a whole lot more than just “Democrat Talking Points” to win over the 8th Congressional District voters and their “crackpot” ideas.
