Illinois congressional candidate Tammy Duckworth is firing back at her opponent, Republican incumbent Joe Walsh, over comments Walsh made about her military service.
Duckworth is a double amputee, the result of a helicopter crash while she served in Iraq in 2004.
Last weekend, Walsh criticized her, saying she talks too much about her service.
He told a crowd in Elk Grove Village, quote, “our true heroes, the men and women who served us, it’s the last thing in the world they talk about.”
Duckworth says Walsh’s comments are an insult, and the spat is drawing some national attention.
