Tammy Duckworth


Congresswoman Tammy Duckworth is standing by her statement that companies that leave the U.S. are deserting their country. 

Duckworth made the comments during Governor Bruce Rauner’s campaign. Rauner was accused of outsourcing jobs. 

"I feel very strongly that you have left your country behind when you do that and you should be -- your loyalty should be here. Pay your fair share. Because it's not fair for those working families that are working two jobs, sometimes three, trying to get by."

Northern Illinois Republican Joe Walsh and his Democratic opponent Tammy Duckworth are squaring off in one of the nation's most closely watched congressional races. On Tuesday night, a debate between the two candidates underscored the tension between the two campaigns.
