Earlier today, Democratic Sen. Herb Kohl announced he was retiring after 24 years in Washington.
Thankfully, there's a progressive champion waiting in the wings to step up and keep this seat for the Democrats in 2012: Russ Feingold.
I don't need to tell you about Russ or his progressive legacy -- the only Senator to vote against the Patriot Act, a national leader for campaign finance reform and against the war in Iraq, and so much more.
He was swept out in last year's Republican wave, but now more than ever we need a progressive champion like Russ fighting for middle class Americans in the Senate.
Sign the petition to draft Russ Feingold for Senate.
Thank you for everything you do.
