Russ Feingold announces the launch of Progressives United

One of the best Senators our country has ever known, Russ Feingold of Wisconsin, has just announced the launch of a new organization dedicated to the lessening of corporate influence in American politics. It’s called Progressives United, and following you’ll see Feingold’s video announcing the organization, as well as his appearance on Rachel Maddow’s MSNBC show the other night, where he spoke about the group’s objectives, as well as the recent union-busting attempts by the new Governor of Wisconsin. I’d encourage you follow the link above and join, as I just did. The more people he has behind him, the more seriously people in politics and the corporate press will take the message.

And, just because I can’t help myself, I feel as though I need to mention that I’ll never forgive the people of Wisconsin for voting a man like Feingold out of office while voting someone like Scott Walker in… From now on, all my cheese curds come from Minnesota.

    If you are thinking of Michele Bachmann she is from MN, not WI

    Feingold has been spending time these past few days in Madison, at the union rallies.

    Feingold announces that he will not run in 2012:

    Dashing the hopes of many Wisconsin progressives, former Democratic senator Russ Feingold announced on Friday that he will not be running for the state’s open U.S. Senate seat or governorship in 2012.

    The news went out in an email message sent to Wisconsin supporters of Progressives United, his political action committee (PAC), and was first reported by Craig Gilbert of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

    “While I may seek elective office again someday, I have decided not to run for public office during 2012,” said Feingold.
