Democrat Russ Feingold lost his U.S. Senate seat to Republican Ron Johnson in 2011. Feingold was first elected to the Senate in 1993, the same year that one of my favorite Bill Murray movies was released. That may seem like a coincidence, but a statement released today by the Johnson campaign says otherwise.
It’s no coincidence that Groundhog Day came out in 1993, the same year Senator Feingold arrived in Washington. Just like Bill Murray wakes up every day and it’s the same, Senator Feingold wakes up every day and wants to run for office.
If that seems like a bit of a reach to you, just be thankful that neither candidate in this race has released a campaign ad based on an Adele song. Am I right?
The latest Marquette Law School Poll shows Feingold is supported by 50 percent of registered voters. The MU poll shows incumbent Johnson at 37 percent.
