Wisconsin’s senior U.S. Senator is making the case for keeping his colleague in office.
Senator Herb Kohl (D-WI) was on the campaign trail Monday in Milwaukee for fellow Democrat Russ Feingold. Kohl says Feingold has passed every test for being effective and accessible to the people of the state, and deserves to continue serving the people of Wisconsin.
Feingold faces Republican Ron Johnson in Tuesday’s election, with polls showing the incumbent trailing among likely voters. Kohl says it’s not surprising, because of the great deal of voter discontent that seems to be out there right now. Kohl argues Feingold is the best person to have around to address those problems.
Still, Kohl says he will “work with whomever the people of Wisconsin vote to represent them.”
