“Russ Feingold is a friend and a tireless advocate for the working families of Wisconsin,” said Vice President Biden. “We’ve fought together to grow our economy, raise wages for American workers, protect Social Security and clean up our campaign finance system. I’m happy to support his campaign for United States Senate, because I know the good work he’ll continue to do for Wisconsin and our nation,” said Biden.

“I’m proud to have the support of President Obama and Vice President Biden,” said Russ. “I’ve worked with both of them and share their commitment to our middle class and working families.  In the past seven years, their leadership has guided us to a stronger economy, and I look forward to building on that progress by fighting to create even more opportunities for Wisconsin families.”
