Endorsement: 11th Congressional District – Biggert

Republican U.S. Rep. Judy Biggert faces Democratic challenger and former Congressman Bill Foster in the Nov. 6 general election for the 11th Congressional District. Elected to Congress in 1998, Biggert, of Hinsdale, sits on three committees: Financial Services; Education and the Workforce; and Science, Space and Technology. She supports repealing the federal health care law and in place of it would look to enact bipartisan solutions that include expanding Health Savings Accounts, allowing Association Health Plans and reforming medical malpractice. Biggert believes that eliminating unnecessary regulations, simplifying the tax code and paying down the national debt would strengthen the economy and lead to job growth. She points to the passage of the JOBS – or Jumpstart Our Business Startups – Act as a bipartisan success. The law encourages small-business funding by easing various regulations. Foster voted for the federal health care law and believes that reforming trade policies and investing in U.S. manufacturing will get the economy back on track. The scientist and businessman lives in Naperville. We endorse Biggert in the race for the 11th District, an area that includes southern Kane County and parts of Will, DuPage, Kendall and Cook counties.
