Feingold takes the fight to Tommy Thompson

At an event today in Milwaukee to celebrate his birthday, U.S. Senator Russ Feingold made it clear it’s time for former Wisconsin governor Tommy Thompson to “put up or shut up” when it comes to the speculation surrounding whether or not Thompson will jump into the 2010 U.S. Senate race here in Wisconsin.

Russ Feingold is exactly right….it’s time for Tommy Thompson to put up or shut up, but if Thompson does “put up,” he’ll be in for the campaign of his life, because he’s never faced an opponent like Russ. The Washington insiders who want Tommy Thompson to run may think Russ Feingold is an easy target, but they seem to have forgotten Tommy Thompson’s reputation as a gaffe machine.

  1. I’m thinking you’re right about Feingold. Thompson’s time in DC will change everything. Head-to-head in debate Feingold will wipe the floor with Tommy.

      1. Actually Tommy may be more surprised when Russ just runs out of the room once the difficult questions are asked just as he did at his “I am not listening session”!

      2. LOL, because that’s likely to happen. You crack me up, Joe. The fact that Republicans are pinning their hopes for beating Sen. Feingold on Tommy Thompson speaks volumes about the state of the Republican Party in Wisconsin.

        1. Well Zach I guess we will see where the cards fall later this year. One things for sure, its not just the Republicans that are tired of the same of BS in our government. I think that we have already seen that the Democrats have good reason to be concerned about their jobs and this race will only strengthen this push. Whether its Tommy or someone else, Feingold is going to have to answer the tough questions at some point.

  2. Well I believe any candidate has until July to file papers to run, so Tommy doesn’t need to “put up” to satisfy the likes of Feingold or you until then.

    1. You’re right, and Thompson will milk this for as long as he can, in order to satisfy his need to stay in the spotlight.
