An effort is underway to get a former U.S. Senate candidate’s name back on the ballot. A website launched this week is urging voters to support Terrence Wall in the Republican primary later this month, by pledging to write-in his name on the ballot.
Wall dropped out of the race earlier this summer after Oshkosh businessman Ron Johnson received the Republican endorsement. The Madison-area developer says he has nothing to do with the write-in effort.
The site claims Wall is the best candidate to take on incumbent Senator Russ Feingold (D-WI) in November. It also includes links to several news stories about Ron Johnson’s campaign. It sets a goal of getting 150,000 voters to pledge they’ll put Walls name on the ballot during the September 14th primary.
Johnson is one of three Republicans seeking to challenge Feingold in November, with David Westlake and Stephen Finn also on the ballot.
