At the same time that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee launched an ad against longtime U.S. Rep. Judy Biggert, the Biggert campaign got its own boost.

The NEA Fund for Children and Public Education spent $546,489 on ad spots after a SuperPAC last week announced it was pit Biggert because she was a Republican who supports gay marriage.

Meanwhile, the DCCC's ad that supports opponent Bill Foster accuses Biggert of "looking out for the wealthy."


Finally, Foster has released his own ad, touting his work as a scientist at Fermilab.
