Walsh Will Run in New District

Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) announced he'll run for re-election in the 14th congressional district, instead of the 8th district he currently represents, setting up a GOP primary with Rep. Randy Hultgren (R-IL), according to the Ward Room.

"In making his decision, Walsh broke an agreement among Republicans not to campaign in new districts until the party's lawsuit against the Democratic map is settled in November. But Walsh, who calls himself 'a tea party conservative first, and a Republican second,' has never been governed by party loyalty."
