Polls: Tight race in 14th Congressional District
October 19, 2010 (WLS) —
A Republican state senator is among the candidates hoping to unseat Democratic incumbent Bill Foster in the 14th District congressional race.
The seat once held by former House Speaker Dennis Hastert represents the far western suburbs.
The race is considered a dead heat and one that both major national parties are keeping a close eye on.
Republican Randy Hultgren is a financial planner, lawyer and state senator.
But polls say the race for Congress in Illinois’ 14th district is like so many: a toss-up between the two major party candidates.
Both candidates disagree about the success or failure of stimulus spending. Hultrgen says it was not worth it in the 14th District.
“If anything, you could maybe argue there were about 600 jobs or less that were saved or created because of that,” said Hultrgen.
While Foster voted for the stimulus and the health care bill, he has compiled a fairly conservative voting record among Democrats. Hultgren disagrees and says Foster has voted with Nancy Pelosi over 92 percent of the time.
