May 15, 2015 Jeb Bush's shifting positions on the Iraq War gave an opening to Republican rivals for the presidential nomination. And will Hillary Clinton answer questions directly on her trip to Iowa next week?
August 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.

September 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.
