NAR bets heavily on 8 House races, backing winners in all but one

Longtime Realtor ally Judy Biggert loses her seat in Congress

Seven out of eight House candidates the National Association of Realtors threw its weight behind in a big way in the months leading up to Tuesday’s election will be members of the 113th Congress.

The lone exception — Rep. Judy Biggert — is a longtime NAR ally whose defeat could represent a setback for the Realtor trade association. Biggert will be packing her bags after serving 14 years in the House of Representatives, having lost a hard-fought race after her congressional district was redrawn.
