Friday, in a shocking move, Local 150, an AFL-CIO member and the largest local in the 8th congressional district of Illinois, endorsed Republican Congressman Joe Walsh, a Tea Party favorite, for reelection to Congress. The union had endorsed Barack Obama for President, but favored Walsh over his Democratic opponent, Tammy Duckworth. Walsh is also endorsed by the Illinois Chamber of Commerce and the taxpayer watchdog’s group, the National Taxpayers Union, which makes for an amazing bipartisan trifecta.
