Got some free time Sunday? The candidates. in the 8th Congressional District could easily book up your day.

Not sure who you're going to vote for? Their schedules are synced so you can see them both.
First up, at 3 p.m. Sunday, Republican Congressman Joe Walsh is hosting a "townhall, rally forum and discussion" on the most defining issue of the campaign the "Obamacare tax" at 3 p.m. at the Belvedere Banquet Hall in Elk Grove Village.

From his release:

"Moms -- Because of ObamaCare, we're losing doctors in droves -- what are you prepared to do to make sure your kids have the best quality care?

Small Business Owners -- ObamaCare is piling regulations and taxes on you, preventing growth and hiring -- what are you prepared to do to save your businesses?

Physicians -- ObamaCare will forever sever your relationship with your patients -- what are you prepared to do to save your profession?

Men and Women of Faith -- ObamaCare will force you to subsidize products that go against your moral compass - what are you prepared to do to protect your religious freedoms?

To all Americans -- ObamaCare is the first big step toward government run and controlled health care -- we can't afford it, and it will lead to rationing and terrible care -- what are you prepared to do to preserve freedom, limited government, and individual responsibility for future generations?"

Well, after that's over, Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh will perform at John Barleycorn in Schaumburg in support of Tammy Duckworth.

The two Joe Walshes - the guitarist and the congressman - don't get along well, after the guitarist threatened to sue the congressman during his 2010 congressional bid over copyright issues.

We hear that Duckworth "cold called" Walsh (of the Eagles) for his support several weeks ago.

That concert begins with a private "legends" reception at 5:15 p.m. and the doors open to the public at 6 p.m. Tickets range from $100 to $2,500.
