Senger chasing Foster in cash dash for House seat

Author: Editor

Tucked away in downtown Naperville, just a few blocks apart, are the campaign offices of Democrat Rep. Bill Foster and his Republican rival, state Rep. Darlene Senger.

Senger’s folks work from rooms with a pleasant view of the DuPage River in a building facing a wrecking ball in a few months.

Foster’s staff sits, for now, in a tiny, stuffy cell hidden behind a barber shop.

As the Senger and Foster teams crank up for the November election from their outposts, Foster starts with a commanding lead in the money race while Senger has almost nothing in her war chest.
