PAC again putting money behind Congressman Walsh

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

A super PAC is again pumping in money to support tea party-backed U.S. Rep. Joe Walsh a week after saying it would re-direct its resources to other races.

The Republican from Chicago's northern suburbs has struggled against his well-financed Democratic opponent, Iraq War veteran Tammy Duckworth. It's one of the most closely watched and volatile U.S. House campaigns in Illinois.

The Now or Never super PAC said last week that it believed Walsh was well on his way to victory, allowing it to put its money elsewhere.

But the Chicago Sun-Times reported Thursday that the Missouri-based political action committee had decided to put another $1 million behind Walsh's campaign.

Its spokesman, Tyler Harber, says Duckworth is trying to "paint Congressman Walsh as a man he is not."
