Russ Feingold visits 72nd county, listening to Wisconsinites
Feingold: "I'm just getting started"
MIDDLETON – In the shadow of iconic Lambeau Field, Russ Feingold pulled off an impressive opening drive in his campaign for United States Senate. In the first 101 days since announcing for U.S. Senate, Russ has listened directly to the needs and concerns of Wisconsinites in each of Wisconsin’s 72 counties.
The stories Russ has heard from families who work full time struggling to make ends meet and business owners anxious to create more jobs have inspired Russ to focus on creating more economic opportunities and improving economic security in every corner of Wisconsin. It’s why Russ announced his support for a gradual raise to a $15 minimum wage and paid family leave in a speech last week.
“I’m just getting started,” said Russ Feingold. “From coffee shops, to jobs sites, to main street businesses and bars, I’m going to continue traveling across Wisconsin this year to listen to the thoughts and concerns of Wisconsinites. The people I’ve met tell me that Wisconsinites want someone with honesty, bipartisanship and independence to serve in the U.S. Senate. They want someone who will focus on the economic well-being of Wisconsin families, not just the billionaires and big corporations who pull the strings of Wall Street and Washington.”
Russ for Wisconsin launched its first radio ad last week highlighting what Russ is hearing from people across the state about how to make Wisconsin’s economy work for working families.
