Wisconsin Senator Russ Feingold needs our support right now.
For months, polling has shown Russ neck and neck with his right-wing opponent Ron Johnson and Johnson has already spent over $4 million on slash-and-burn television ads to mislead voters and scare up votes. In fact, he's been out spending Russ on T.V. by 3 to 1 and as of this week, it appears to be working. The most recent polling shows Senator Feingold down by 7%.
This is unacceptable.
Senator Russ Feingold is one of the strongest progressive fighters in the Senate. Time after time Russ has delivered for America and Wisconsin. It's up to us to make sure he has the resources to fight back and win.

Ron Johnson is a multimillionaire right-wing Republican who wants to cut Social Security, repeal the entire healthcare bill, and extend all the Bush-Cheney tax cuts for wealthy millionaires instead of helping middle class Americans. He's already committed to spending at least 15 million of his own money to win. When asked how much more of his personal fortune he's be willing to dump into his own election, his response was "all of it."
The good news is we can beat Ron Johnson and re-elect Russ Feingold with people-power.
Russ is running a real grassroots campaign. They've already contacted 228,696 Wisconsin voters, opened 22 field offices across the state, and his most recent T.V. ad is playing in heavy rotation. Russ will win not just because he has a strong record of delivering for Wisconsin, he'll win because he has the best volunteers and supporters working to get out the vote.
In short, Russ will win, because of you.

Let's face it; elections are going to be close all over the country this November. It's up to us to make sure we take great progressives like Russ Feingold over the top on Election Day.
Working together, we're unstoppable. That's why I know I can count on you today.
