Joe Walsh Endorsed by Fastener Business, Small Biz Group




    The Tea Party Congressman says he's fighting for small business owners like the ones who run the fastener sorting company SWD Inc. (Published Monday, Aug. 27, 2012)

    Rep. Joe Walsh dished out the red meat Monday during an endorsement ceremony in the suburbs.

    The Tea Party congressman from Illinois' 8th District received endorsements from the National Federation of Independent Businesses and SWD Inc.  SWD, a fastener sorting company in Addison, Ill., hosted the event.

    Walsh said during the acceptance that he plans to continue fighting for small businesses should he win a second term in congress. He also took a shot at President Obama, conjuring a line from the campaign in which Obama said "you didn't build that" about small business owners and public infrastructure.
