Walsh Reportedly Considering Governor Run

After his loss to Tammy Duckworth in the November 6 election, former Congressman Joe Walsh is open to a run for Illinois governor, the Huffington Post reports.

After spending $7 million on his campaign to keep his congressional seat and losing to challenger Tammy Duckworth, former Congressman Joe Walsh is reportedly keeping his options open for a potential run for Illinois governor in 2014, the Huffington Post reports. 

Walsh also would consider, according to the Huffington Post, becoming a television pundit, and has said he wants to be part of a movement. 

Walsh lost by more than 10 percentage points against Tammy Duckworth in the November 6 election.

Didn't he get the message with his shellacking by Tammy Duckworth? Illinois is finished with the failed and out of step Tea Party. You're history Joe.

Walsh lost because the Democrats set the boundries of the district to favor Duckworth, not necessarily becuase he was Tea Party. A run for the governor will determine if his views are consistant with the majority of the state voters.
