MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Former Democratic presidential nominee Michael Dukakis is helping Russ Feingold raise money for his U.S. Senate race in Wisconsin.

Dukakis was among those scheduled to be at a Feingold fundraiser Monday in Massachusetts. Dukakis ran for president in 1988 but was beaten by Republican George H.W. Bush. Wisconsin was one of only 10 states Dukakis carried that year in the loss.

Feingold is running against Republican Sen. Ron Johnson, who defeated Feingold in 2010.

Johnson has also been raising money nationwide, including in August with former Vice President Dick Cheney in Wyoming.

Wisconsin Republican Party spokesman Pat Garrett says Feingold is focusing his fundraising on “East Coast elites and fellow politicians from yesterday.”

Feingold campaign manager Tom Russell did not react specifically to Republican criticism, but instead pointed to Johnson’s fundraising efforts with Cheney and others.
