Giuliani Stumps for Judy Biggert

The former New York mayor appeared at a fundraiser for Reps. Judy Biggert and Robert Dold Tuesday in Chicago.

A local Congressional candidate got a boost from a big name on Tuesday, according to the Chicago Tribune.

The newspaper reported that former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani headlined a Chicago fundraiser for Republicans Judy Biggert, who hopes to win reelection in her new district, and Robert Dold of Kenilworth.

Biggert, who has represented the 3rd District for seven terms, is running against Democrat Bill Foster to represent the new 11th District.

Giuliani praised Biggert and Dold, saying they would work to create jobs and rein in federal spending, the Tribune reported.

"They also happen to be Republicans who know how to work with Democrats and independents," Giuliani said at the Standard Club of Chicago. "Frankly, we need more of that in Washington."
