U.S. Rep. Judy Biggert (R-Ill.) has endorsed State Sen. Kirk Dillard (R-Hinsdale) in his 24th Senate District Republican primary race against State Rep. Chris Nybo (R-Lombard).
Biggert announced her endorsement in a release sent out Monday morning, citing the incumbent's "leadership in budget matters" as her reasoning.
"I can say from first-hand experience that Kirk’s style of government is, 'If you can't afford it, you can't spend it,'" Biggert said in the release. "I like that."
Biggert, who is in the midst of her own Republican primary race in Illinois' 11th Congressional District, lives in Hinsdale and is the chairperson of the Insurance, Housing and Community Opportunity Subcommittee of the U.S. House Committee on Financial Services.
“We must return Kirk to Springfield to continue to work on the important and difficult issues facing Illinois. It is critical for our community to have an experienced and respected Senator in Springfield developing clear policy objectives,” Biggert said.
Municipalities included in the newly redistricted 24th District are Clarendon Hills, Darien, Downers Grove, Elmhurst, Glen Ellyn, Hinsdale, Lisle, Lombard, Oak Brook, Oakbook Terrace, Western Springs, Westmont, Wheaton and Willowbrook.
