Foster Claims Victory Against Hickey and Thomas in 11th Congressional District

The Orland Fire Protection District board president was not immediately available for comment.

UPDATE: Bill Foster has declared victory in this race, and Juan Thomas, his closest competitor, said he will call to concede. Foster's victory speech at Village Links in Glen Ellyn took aim at Rep. Judy Biggert's voting record, and concerned the campaign he plans to wage against her. Full story coming soon.

The new 11th Congressional District has no incumbent. It includes the major cities of Aurora, Naperville and Joliet, and spans from Aurora in the west to Burr Ridge in the east, and as far south as Channahon.

Three Democrats are vying for the nomination: former 14th District Congressman Bill Foster, Orland Fire Protection District President Jim Hickey, and attorney Juan Thomas. The winner will face 13th District Rep. Judy Biggert in November.
