Rocker Joe Walsh Endorses Tammy Duckworth Over U.S. Rep. Joe Walsh
No, you’re not living a life of illusion — Joe Walsh really is endorsing Tammy Duckworth in her northwest suburban congressional race against … Joe Walsh.
That is, Joe Walsh, the rock star and guitarist for The Eagles, is backing Duckworth in her race against U.S. Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.), the Tea Party favorite.
“I’m the real Joe Walsh, and I’m proud to back a real American success story — Tammy Duckworth,” the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer said Tuesday, endorsing the Democratic candidate in her bid to unseat the incumbent Republican who shares his name.
Joe Walsh, the congressman, whose full name is William Joseph Walsh, has suffered some ribbing on liberal websites about his driver’s license having been suspended suspended in the past, with references made to the Joe Walsh lyric, “I lost my license — now I don’t drive.”
“Tammy’s story, her service to our nation and her continued commitment to working families (like the one I come from), have convinced me that she’s the right choice for Congress,” said Walsh, the musician.
