Russ Feingold (D, NOTHING) cuts and runs.
(Via Hot Air) Russ Feingold’s not running for Senate in 2012. He’s not running for Governor in a hypothetical (and futile) 2012 recall election. He’s not running for Governor in the 2014 general election[*]. Russ Feingold’s just running away: “After twenty-eight continuous years as an elected official … I have found the past eight months to be an opportunity to look at things from a | Read More »
