GOP Rep. Judy Biggert gets big union backing October 08, 2012 | |

In a session at Hinsdale South High School, two officials from the Illinois Education Association will talk about why the teachers' union has decided to "recommend" incumbent U.S. Rep. Judy Biggert over the challenger, former Congressman Bill Foster, a Democrat in the west suburban 11th District.
