The Quick Facts

  • This week, former House representative Joe Walsh announced he would be challenging President Trump in the GOP primaries. 
  • In 2010, Walsh was elected to the U.S. House from Illinois as part of the conservative Tea Party movement. He served one term, losing reelection in 2012 when his district was redrawn.
  • After leaving office, Walsh began hosting a conservative talk radio show. He was initially a strong supporter of Trump, but has since become increasingly critical, declaring the president’s behavior in office has made him a “danger to the country.”
