LAKE COUNTY - The Northern Illinois Patriots honored Congressman Joe Walsh (R-IL8) as the first recipient of the PATRIOT OF THE YEAR AWARD at its annual fundraiser last Friday.
The Northern Illinois Patriots wrote:
Walsh is #1 Dem Target (Congrats, Joe!)
"The race for the 8th is one of most watched races in the nation as the Democrats have made Congressman Walsh their number one target. The Democrats plan to take out our strongest voice for smaller government, lower taxes, and less spending in order to put Nancy Pelosi back into power! Tammy Duckworth is just a rubber stamp vote for Obama and Pelosi's agenda, getting support from groups like “Emily’s List” (a pro-choice advocacy group) and has stated that she will raise taxes, spend more, and touted that ObamaCare did not go far enough!"
Then the group asks for action after awards -
This Saturday, Congressman Walsh and the Walsh for Congress team will be marching in the Streamwood "Summer Celebration" parade. The parade kicks off at 10 am with line up starting at 9:30am. If you would like to march with the congressman, please contact Barb at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Following the parade, Congressman Walsh will host a Let Joe Know event for voters in the 8th Congressional District so that they may share their concerns about the way Washington is affecting their families. This discussion is open to all who wish to join in on the conversation.
