It was supposed to be an easy re-election for Sen. Russ Feingold. And come November, it still may be. But for now, the Wisconsin Democrat is facing one of his toughest campaign challenges in a long and successful political career.
"That's not likely to go up a lot because people just aren't likely to learn a lot more about Feingold," said Thomas M. Holbrook, a political science professor at the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee. "I think that's a little bit of a concern for him."
"He's a very liberal U.S. senator and Wisconsin is a very middle-of-the-road state, so he's always got to sort of fight a little harder [in races] than somebody like [Democratic Sen.] Herb Kohl, who is a little bit more middle of the road," Mr. Holbrook said.
