About the Candidate
Joe Walsh is a former congressman (R-IL) and a candidate for the Republican nomination for president in 2020. Walsh announced his decision to seek the nomination on August 25, 2019.
"Elected to Congress in the Tea Party wave of 2010, Walsh went to Washington hellbent on shaking up the political establishment, and that he did. Walsh was one of the most outspoken members of Congress, advocating for a balanced budget amendment, term limits, common-sense tax cuts, and a range of free-market conservative policy solutions.
Walsh refused his congressional health benefits and pension, slept in his office, limited himself to no more than three terms in office, and held more town hall meetings than any other member.
Walsh's time in office was just one chapter in a life devoted to public service and advocacy for limited government policies. Following his service in Congress, Walsh became one of the most popular conservative talk radio hosts in the country, syndicated in major markets throughout the U.S.
A native of Illinois, Walsh grew up the middle of nine children in an Irish Catholic family with deep mid-western roots. He attended Grinnell College, the University of Iowa, and the University of Chicago, where he received a master's degree in public policy.
Walsh lives in the suburbs of Chicago with his wife Helene. Between them, they have five children."
