VIDEO: Professor Russ Feingold Resumes Job at Elite California University
Feingold finds tropical climate to plot return to power
[Madison, Wis.] – Today, Professor Russ Feingold officially begins teaching classes at Stanford University in California. This move comes in advance of Feingold’s impending Wisconsin run for the U.S. Senate in 2016. Feingold has spent minimal time in Wisconsin since his defeat in 2010, and he has already moved on to the West Coast – where, ironically, he will plot his effort to convince Wisconsinites to give his failed record a second chance. Wisconsin already rejected Russ Feingold’s radical tax-and-spend agenda once for good reason, and he was consistently one of the most liberal members of the U.S. Senate.
The Republican Party of Wisconsin released a new web video highlighting Feingold’s California living. View the video by clicking here.
Feingold has lost touch with Main Street, Wisconsin, and he is quick to share his favorite part of California:
“…a cup of coffee under a palm tree.”
Out of Touch and Too Radical for the U.S. Senate
- Feingold acted as the deciding vote on Obamacare, the disastrous federal takeover of our nation’s healthcare system that will cost taxpayers $1.2 trillion over the next 10 years.
- Rather than support commonsense efforts to put our nation’s fiscal house back in order, Russ Feingold voted against a Balanced Budget Amendment on four separate occasions.
- Feingold lauded the failed stimulus package, which came with a $800 billion price tag, as the best way to balance the budget.
“If Stanford Professor Russ Feingold was serious about making his case to Wisconsin voters, he would spend less time living in California and more time explaining his support for failed policies that amplified our national debt and increased taxes,” said Joe Fadness, Executive Director of the Republican Party of Wisconsin. “Instead, Feingold is running away to California to dodge serious questions about his record.”
