"You know that I believe fervently in that vision. I don't know of many other candidates who articulate that vision. Am I going to do something? Oh gosh, I don't know. People approach me every day and ask, 'Walsh, are you going to run for the governor? Are you going to run for Senate?' I want to do my part to lead a movement to present a vision to this. I'd rather go down fighting. Democrats have ruined this state but they've been able to do it because the Republicans have allowed them to."I'm not sure what vision Walsh is talking about here; his reelection bid seemed to be based mostly around the "vision" that his opponent was mean to him because she existed, and talked about her service too much, etc., etc.
Sorry, Illinois, Joe Walsh says he wants to govern you. If it's any consolation, I don't actually think he'll follow through with it. He's just pouting.
