Duckworth Campaign Issues Statement on Walsh’s Insult to Veterans
At a town hall Sunday, Congressman Joe Walsh said of opponent Tammy Duckworth’s military service, “Now I’m running against a woman who, my God, that’s all she talks about. Our true heroes, it’s the last thing in the world they talk about.” Campaign Manager Kaitlin Fahey issued the following statement:
This week we celebrate our country’s founding and we are grateful for the courage and service of all of our military men and women throughout our nation’s history. Congressman Walsh’s comments insult those who sacrificed to make this country free. Tammy is proud of her over twenty years of service with the Army and her family’s legacy of fighting for this country. We can’t recognize our servicemen and women enough and ask that we keep them in our thoughts during this holiday week.
