Missouri-based PAC backing Walsh with big $$$

A super PAC has once again upped its bet on Congressman Joe Walsh, R-North Barrington, and now looks like it may well hit the $2 million mark on his behalf in the northwest suburban 8th District.

As of late Thursday, according to the Sunlight Foundation, the Now or Never PAC has reported spending $1.75 million here, mostly on TV ads promoting Mr. Walsh or zapping his Democratic foe, Tammy Duckworth.

The "independent" expenditures are up almost a half a million dollars just from earlier this week, with some tens of thousands of other spending by the group not yet reflected in Sunlight's database.

That's big money in anybody's ballpark — and is exactly what Ms. Duckworth told me at the Democratic National Convention that she feared would happen at the last minute.

He spreads shame upon all of us Illinoisans. I still don't understand how that complete teabagger asshole polls ahead of Duckworth, a decorated war veteran who has a LOT of good things to say. How stupid can people up in that area possibly be? DNC should be dumping $$$ in that race, just to make a point.
