U-S Representative Joe Walsh says he has better things to do than mingle with politicians at the Republican National Convention. Walsh says that instead of attending the convention, he plans to host town halls and meet with the people of his congressional district. The McHenry Republican challenged his opponent to do the same when the Democrats convene. Walsh is serving his first term and faces a rough election fight. A conservative with tea party support, Walsh has been a fierce critic of President Obama. He also made headlines when he accused opponent Tammy Duckworth of talking too much about injuries she suffered as a pilot in the Iraq War. Duckworth lost both legs when her helicopter was shot down.
