The Bill Foster campaign reported that it raised more than $640,000 last quarter, its most successful fundraising quarter this election cycle. Last week, an independent poll showed Foster leading Congresswoman Judy Biggert by three points. The momentum for the campaign continues to build, showing a clear path to victory in the final stretch of the campaign. The strength of the campaign shows that people are eager to have a voice in Congress who represents the best interests of middle class families.
“Our momentum is stronger than ever going into the final push, making it clear that after 30 years in politics, Congresswoman Biggert is no longer on the side of middle class families,” said Bill Foster. “The path to victory is in sight and it’s time that we had leadership in Washington who will focus on creating jobs, preserving Medicare, and strengthening the middle class. I’m very confident in the campaign we have built and we will continue to work hard to make sure that seniors and middle class families finally have the advocate they deserve.”
