Earlier today, Senator Herb Kohl of Wisconsin announced his retirement after 24 years of service in Washington. Here’s the good news…. there is a true progressive champion waiting in the wings to step in and keep this seat for the Democrats in 2012: Russ Feingold.
There should be no debate on Russ Feingold’s qualifications or his commitment to the American people– this is a man who worked hard to protect the middle-class by protecting workers rights, who fought for our seniors by protecting Medicare and Social Security, and who fought for affordable health care by supporting single payer health insurance. No one knows campaign finance reform like Feingold.
We’ve witnessed first hand the disaster that has come from the Republican majority in the House. Medicare and Medicaid are under attack and they’re threatening to privatize Social Security. They’ve attacked workers and the unemployed while protecting tax breaks for big oil and for the wealthy. We need Russ Feingold in the Senate.
Sign our petition to draft Russ Feingold today. We’ll be sending him this petition with your signatures and comments to show him how important it is for him to run for Senate in 2012. Please, add you name today!
