The editorial blog of the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle is reporting that Rep. Jim Walsh (R-NY), a moderate Republican, “is switching gears and is now calling for withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq.” Additionally, “Walsh, who visited Iraq during the weekend, says he will no longer support funding the war.” The paper’s Washington correspondent, Erin Kelly, will have full report tomorrow.

UPDATE: In the full article, Walsh says “Before I went, I was not prepared to say it’s time to start bringing our troops home. I am prepared to say that now. It’s time.”

UPDATE II: Here’s Walsh’s full statement.
