CLTV Host Confronts Foster Over Endorsements

11th District candidate reportedly changed website after interview with "Politics Tonight" host Paul Lisnek.

Democrat Bill Foster has taken some heat from Republicans in his bid to unseat seven-term Congresswoman Judy Biggert, but earlier this week, he faced criticism from a TV newsman who accused him of attempting to mislead voters.

WATCH: CLTV Host Confronts Foster

In a televised face-to-face interview with the former congressman turned candidate, CLTV "Politics Tonight" host Paul Lisnek asked Foster about some of the endorsements listed on his campaign website, including reported nods from the Chicago Tribune, Kane County Chronicle and Daily Herald — all of which have endorsed Biggert.

Foster, who is running against Biggert to represent the new 11th Congressional District, explained that the website was referring to endorsements for the March primary, not the November general election.

"I think if you look at the date which all those were posted, I was endorsed by all those organizations in the primary," he said. 

NBC Chicago reported that Foster has since updated the website to specify when the endorsements were made, using the word "primary" in parentheses after each publication.

"Congressman turned candidate"?

Yes Mike "Former" Congressman turned Candidate of the new Congressional District. That part you omitted in your question. Before that he was in a whole different District, but the realigning of the area allowed him to run for this.

Why is Judy Biggert still around. When she first ran for office 30 years ago, part of her platform was for term limits. She said she wouldn't run for more then two terms. How long does one term last for her?

I am in agreement that there should be term limits for all state and federal offices. We do not need these career politicians like Durbin, Biggert and Madigan.
