About this Article

Democrat Tammy Duckworth Tuesday accused Republican U.S. Rep. Joe Walsh of attacking her military service and a video of some of his comments is drawing national attention, providing another blow in the heated contest for Congress from the 8th District. At a town-hall meeting in Elk Grove Village Sunday, Walsh contrasted Duckworth with Republican U.S. Sen. John McCain, who he said often downplayed his decorated military career in his 2008 bid for president.
