Feingold reverses course, will appear with Obama
MADISON, Wis. — Democratic U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold says on Twitter that he will be appearing with President Barack Obama at his Wisconsin rally after all.
Feingold had originally said he would be in Washington, D.C., during Tuesday’s rally on the Madison campus of the University of Wisconsin. Republicans pointed to that as a sign the Wisconsin senator was running scared from Obama, whose approval ratings are at an all-time low in Wisconsin.
But Feingold sent a tweet around 3:30 p.m. saying he finished voting and was proud to be joining Obama at the rally at Feingold’s alma mater. Feingold opted not appear with Obama earlier this month at a Labor Day rally in Milwaukee.
Polls show Feingold is trailing Republican businessman Ron Johnson in the Senate race.
