Aug 19, 2011 — Russ Feingold, the former Democratic U.S. senator from Wisconsin knocked out of office as part of the 2012 Republican wave, has decided against running for governor or the Senate.
May 24, 2011 — Try as he might, Wisconsin's Russ Feingold in 2010 couldn't hang onto the Senate seat he occupied for three terms, so strong was the mid-term election wave. Now, in a reversal of fortune, he may be the Democrats' best hope for keeping Sen. Kohl's seat in Democratic hands.
Nov 2, 2010 — With Johnson's defeat of Feingold, Republicans picked up four formerly Democratic seats. Feingold was perhaps the biggest trophy so far for Republicans since his name was on the hated (by the GOP) McCain-Feingold campaign-finance law.
Sep 22, 2010 — Democratic Sen. Russ Feingold is essentially tied with Republican Ron Johnson, a wealthy businessman who's making his first run for major political office. Feingold appears to be hurt by the ant—incumbent mood and the antipathy towards Democrats.
May 28, 2010 — If you're wondering how scary the anti-incumbent tide looks to incumbents, ask any U.S. senator on the ballot this year. But hurry, the species is endangered.
