Tonight’s debate between Rep. Joe Walsh and radical lefty Tammy Duckworth (both running for Congress in the newly reconstituted 8th Congressional District of Illinois) has drawn national attention. Duckworth, who has demonstrated little understanding of national policy issues up to now, is running in a district drawn specifically for her by campaign manager, David Axelrod. Walsh came from behind in 2010 to defeat Democrat Melissa Bean and is gaining ground on Duckworth in the 8th – despite his conservative credentials, the Republican establishment now is (grudgingly) supporting his candidacy.

The debate is being broadcast live on WIND AM 560 radio from 7 to 9 p.m. tonight (10/9/12). Sponsored by Champion News and WIND, the debate will be moderated by Dick Kay and Steve Cochran. Don’t miss Government’s excellent post by RebelPundit on Duckworth’s resume.
