With the November 6 election just days away, the barbs between incumbent Congressman Joe Walsh and his opponent Tammy Duckworth appear to be at a fever pitch.
Walsh has called into question Duckworth's firing of two state employees when she ran the Illinois Department of Veterans Affairs, CBS reports. Duckworth has commented little as she has said the case is still in litigation.
Duckworth has pointed the finger as well.
In a press release from her campaign office Thursday, Duckworth criticized Walsh for his alleged association with the group Now or Never, for spending $1 million against her campaign.
She referred the group as a "Super PAC completely funded by the far-right wing organization Americans for Limited Government," according to the release.
Walsh came back by stating that Duckwoth recently benefitted form a $2.4 million attack ad purchased by a House Majority PAC, stating through a press release from Walsh for Congress, "Tammy Duckworth has spent much of her campaign grandstanding against Super PACs......her own contributors are bankrolling the very same Super PAC."
Don't forget to vote November 6.
