But Again, Russ Feingold is NOT, I Repeat, NOT in Trouble

Seriously, one would almost think God is intentionally making the liberal bloggers in this state look like fools when a story like this appears after they have spent countless blog posts trying to tell us all that Russ Feingold — a guy who still hasn’t hit over 50 percent in any re-elect poll by any polling firm — isn’t in some form of trouble.

Tell that to the fund raising appeal.

Vice President Joe Biden will return to Wisconsin later this month to attend a fundraiser for former Senate colleague Russ Feingold in Milwaukee.

The $500 per ticket fundraiser, featuring Biden and Feingold, D-Middleton, is set for June 24 at the Pfister Hotel. Biden was last in the Badger State in April for a financial reform roundtable with Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner.

A $500 a ticket fundraiser at the Pfister with the Vice President of the United States.  Wow, that’s the sort of thing usually reserved for someone…in trouble.  Clearly, the Feingold Campaign must have issued this as some sort of mistake.

As for the per-person cost, I leave the remaining amount of my time to Zach W of Blogging Blue, who in the past had explained to us all what is the proper price for a political fundraiser in Wisconsin.

By the way, the Feingold fundraiser is twice as much per head than the Walker one Zach pointed out in February.

  • When you're running against someone reportedly willing to spend $10-15 million, it's a good idea to raise some money yourself. Excuse me if that's too obvious, but you seemed to have missed it. I hope we see Obama raising money for both Feingold and Barrett.

    The one who seems to be in trouble at the moment is Scott Walker, who may not even win the nomination.

  • Ken Van Doren

    Kevin-

    Not nice to point out logical inconsistencies of those on the left. Plus, once started, where would you stop?
