Walsh To Hold Town Halls In New District



    Rep. Joe Walsh, Tea Party-Illinois, is taking advantage of the congressional recess to hold four town hall meetings -- something he does more than any other member of the Illinois congressional delegation.

    But Walsh won’t be appearing among his constituents in the current 8th District of Illinois. He’ll be appearing before prospective supporters in the new 8th District, the west- and northwest-suburban district where he’s running in 2012. He’ll probably draw big crowds, because every political junkie wants to be there the next time Walsh snaps. Here’s the schedule. Bring a video camera, in case Walsh says something YouTube-able:
