The former Senator from Wisconsin is widely considered to be not only one of the most principled senators in recent history, but also the standard bearer for the progressive tradition started in Wisconsin over a century ago.
He led the fight against the USA Patriot Act and the TARP bailout which saw Wall Street bankers get off scott-free for crashing the American economy. He also was a co-drafter of the McCain-Feingold Campaign finance reform act which has since been negated by the Citizens United ruling.
Now, in the winter of our discontent, Wisconsin needs him again.
In only the short space of one year, Governor Walker's radical agenda has eliminated the collective bargaining rights of Wisconsites, while trampling on the voting rights of citizens. He promised opening the state for business but instead we have seen only more pain with the loss of more jobs under Scott Waker.
While there are others who can reverse the decline of our state under Governor Walker, none hold as good a chance as Senator Feingold does in defeating Scott Walker.
Join us in urging him to consider a run on the Democratic ticket to recall and replace Scott Walker.
