* Mike Riopell talked to former Congressman Joe Walsh, who says he may run for US Senate…
“I’m still considering a run in 2014,” said Walsh, now a WIND-AM talk show host who hinted at a run for governor days after his 2012 loss.
The McHenry Tea Party favorite says he’s keeping his options open, but the only race he named Thursday was U.S. Senate.
“It’s probably the race that I’m most seriously considering,” Walsh said, adding he’ll decide within a month.
Three’s a crowd?
So far, Republicans Doug Truax of Downers Grove and Chad Koppie of Gilberts have talked about a 2014 bid to unseat Democratic U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin of Springfield.
Truax has been a fairly active candidate so far and is in the race “no matter who enters the Republican primary,” said his spokesman, Dan Curry.
