Why Today's Supreme Court Ruling on Campaign Finance Reform Just Handed Russ Feingold Another Term in the Senate

The short answer: CFR is Feingold's wheelhouse. Nobody in the country flogs the topic better and no state in the country eats it up like Wisconsin. Wisco's been at CFR for well over 100 years now. We love it. We can't get enough of it.

This gives him another battle to fight and another reason for Wisconsin to send him back into the breach.

I never really had much doubt that Feingold was going to win re-election, which is one of the reasons it hasn't been discussed here, but today's ruling clinches it. The ruling gives Feingold's campaign a casus belli and it gives voters a non-economy (though, simultaneously, intimately economic) reason to be pissed at Washington. The TV spots almost write themselves.

I'm still reeling from the SC decision.
Un-f*cking believable.

Go Russ Go!
