Biggert: 'I think that this is a matter for the state'
Chicago, IL —
Congressional candidates Judy Biggert and Bill Foster—battling to represent Illinois' 11th District—recently sparred over a number of issues during a WTTW political debate, and hot among them was the question of same-sex marriage.
Biggert, a Republican, and Foster, a Democrat, disagreed on the program Chicago Tonight over whether same-sex couples should be able to marry; however, both identified themselves as supporters of LGBT rights.
Foster said he supports marriage equality. Biggert said she is close.
