Foster In Endorsement Flap

Bill Foster, the former congressman running against 11th District incumbent Judy Biggert, updated his website’s endorsements page after CLTV’s Paul Lisnek called him out for misleading voters.

 "As I read it, it indicated that, and basically your words are that the following entities have publicly supported you for Congress, but it listed Chicago Tribune, Kane County Chronicle, Daily Herald. Now, they have endorsed Judy Biggert.”

"Those are primary endorsements," Foster explained. "I think if you look at the day all those were posted, I was endorsed by all those organizations in the primary.”

Foster’s website now includes the word “primary” in parenthesis after each publication’s name. Foster defeated Juan Thomas and Jim Hickey in the March 20 Democratic primary.

In other 11th District news, Biggert received the endorsement of former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice, who said:

Judy Biggert is an example of the thoughtful, bipartisan, commonsense leadership we need in Washington. She has a proven record of working across the aisle to address the problems confronting Illinoisans and all Americans every day. She is committed to improving our economic competitiveness and protecting the country, I’m proud to stand with her as she works to represent the 11th District.
