Missouri-based PAC backing Walsh with big $$$
A super PAC has once again upped its bet on Congressman Joe Walsh, R-North Barrington, and now looks like it may well hit the $2 million mark on his behalf in the northwest suburban 8th District.
As of late Thursday, according to the Sunlight Foundation, the Now or Never PAC has reported spending $1.75 million here, mostly on TV ads promoting Mr. Walsh or zapping his Democratic foe, Tammy Duckworth.
The "independent" expenditures are up almost a half a million dollars just from earlier this week, with some tens of thousands of other spending by the group not yet reflected in Sunlight's database.
That's big money in anybody's ballpark and is exactly what Ms. Duckworth told me at the Democratic National Convention that she feared would happen at the last minute.
He spreads shame upon all of us Illinoisans. I still don't understand how that complete teabagger asshole polls ahead of Duckworth, a decorated war veteran who has a LOT of good things to say. How stupid can people up in that area possibly be? DNC should be dumping $$$ in that race, just to make a point.
