ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- The Rockford Tea Party had a special guest speaker today.
Congressman Joe Walsh of Illinois' 8th district stopped by the Rockford Tea Party's meeting at the downtown library today. Walsh says the Tea Party is the silent majority and it’s growing every day. The representative has also opposed most of President Obama's agenda. He says it's time to get Obama out of office.
Rep. Joe Walsh, (R) 8th District, says, "This president, respectively, his policies are destroying everything that's made this country great. We have got to defeat him and defeat everybody on the side of bigger government."
Just a reminder, Illinois' primary is March 20th. Absentee voting is currently underway. It ends on February 26th, but early voting starts on the 27th.
