Former Congressman and WIND radio talk show host Joe Walsh took his Walsh Freedom Tour to McHenry County yesterday. According to Cal Skinner of McHenry County Blog, approximately 200 people showed up at the townhall meeting.
Walsh told the audience that he puts Republicans into three categories:
- Those who watched Democrats over the last fifty years and believe their strategy works.
- Those Walsh labeled “the Carl Rowe Republicans” who They think they “can manage government better than the Democrats.”
- Those who seek smaller government -- putting himself in that category.
The fight in this country is no longer between Republicans and Democrats, Walsh said. "It’s between supporters of small government and supporters of big government."
