Sen. Baldwin campaigns for Feingold, Nelson


GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) – Wisconsin Democrats are criss-crossing the state, making one final push for Wisconsin voters to get out and vote on Tuesday.

Senate candidate Russ Feingold, House of Representatives candidate Tom Nelson and U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin were in Green Bay on Friday, talking about the importance of getting people to the polls.

“What this really is about is the idea that the people in this state feel that they are working hard, and they should be able to pay their bills,” Feingold said, “and that is not what is happening, and I am the only candidate for the United State Senate who will work with working families.”

The most recent Marquette poll released earlier this week showed Feingold in a dead heat with incumbent senator Ron Johnson. Feingold had a one-point lead over Johnson among likely voters in Wisconsin, but the poll’s margin of error is three-and-a-half points.

Political experts say the party that wins Wisconsin’s seat in the U.S. Senate could depend on undecided and last-minute voters.

So in an effort to get those voters to the polls, Feingold is making one last effort to rally up support and tell people why he deserves their vote.

Feingold says he’s visited all 72 counties in Wisconsin — a tradition dating back to his first term in the Senate — listening to the people’s priorities and concerns. And he says he’ll continue listening as the final vote is cast.
