Joe Walsh’s Running Policies

Policy Icon

As Walsh has just announced his presidential run, his policies are not available right now. However, his policies will likely align with his previous conservative and Tea Party political stances taken while in the House of Representatives.

Joe Walsh’s Previous Policies

In a failed Congressional bid in 1996, Walsh favored abortion rights and gun control. But as time has gone on, his views have shifted. In 2012, Walsh said that abortion is never medically required to save the mother’s life.

Walsh is also a supporter of tax cuts, entitlement reform, and stricter border legislation. He is also skeptical about global warming, claiming the science is not conclusive, and economic interests should come first when establishing climate agreements.


Experience Icon

Before his career as a social worker, Walsh began as an actor in New York and Los Angeles. Then in 1996, Walsh challenged Democrat Sidney R. Yates for Illinois’s 9th congressional district. Yates beat Walsh 63% to 37%. Two years later, Walsh took on Democratic Jeffrey Schoenberg for the 58th district seat in the Illinois House of Representatives. Walsh lost again, this time 62% to 38%.

Walsh’s first successful bid came in 2011 when he secured Illinois’s 8th congressional district in the United States House of Representatives, beating Democrat Melissa Bean by 0.1% with 291 more votes. Walsh lost this spot in 2012 when he was beaten 55% to 45% by Tammy Duckworth.


Education Icon

Walsh began his college education at Grinnell College before earning his Bachelor of Arts in English from the University of Iowa in 1985. After taking lessons in stage, theater, and television at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute, Walsh completed his Masters of Public Policy at the University of Chicago’s Harris School of Public Policy Studies in 1991.

Civic Work

Before Walsh took office, he was a social worker for the Jobs for Youth program in the inner-city Chicago area. Via Walsh’s congressional website, he also ran the Daniel Murphy Scholarship Fund, raised funds for the American Education Reform Council and the Milton and Rose Friedman Foundation, plus raised nearly $1 million over a five-year period for the Fabretto Children’s Foundation.

Joe Walsh’s Views On Gambling

How Much Can I Win If I Bet On Joe Walsh?

As of right now, Walsh does not have any betting odds available, meaning an accurate prediction on winnings cannot be established.

Top 5 Reasons Joe Walsh’s Chances Of Winning Are Real

  2. Walsh is one of the few Republicans to come out and challenge Trump. His courage could be refreshing to Republican voters.
