Walsh, Duckworth trade insults in debate
ROLLING MEADOWS – A third debate between candidates in one of the most-watched congressional races devolved into name calling as Republican Congressman Joe Walsh labeled Democrat Tammy Duckworth a "failed bureaucrat" and she called him a tea party servant.
The two-hour faceoff Tuesday night saw the candidates for the newly-redrawn 8th Congressional District touch on issues ranging from the future of Medicare to gridlock in Washington.
Walsh, of McHenry, said his fight against raising the debt ceiling and backing a balanced budget amendment makes him the best choice for the seat. Duckworth said protection of Medicare and Social Security guarantees makes her the better choice.
