From U.S. Senator Dick Durbin:
I wrote to you a few months ago to tell you about a remarkable candidate for Congress — Tammy Duckworth.
Joe Walsh continues to be the most outspoken (and controversial) Tea Party member of the House.
He relishes the endless confrontation and works overtime to fuel the bitter rhetoric attacking the Democrats and the President. He is proud of the Tea Party threats to shut down essential government services and destroy America’s reputation for paying its debts. Joe Walsh promises more confrontation; more personal attacks and more stalemate.
Illinois and our Congress deserve better.
Tammy is a true public servant who knows what it means to serve our country.
She’s also a proven leader who understands what it will take to rebuild our economy and create jobs. Her courage and common sense make her exactly the kind of person we need in Congress.
I can’t think of a better person to replace Joe Walsh than Tammy.
Thanks for your help,
