Feingold says most convention goers want him to run for guv

U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold says he will make a decision by Labor Day whether to run for the Senate next year. But he noted about 75 percent to 80 percent of the dozens who encouraged him to run for office again wanted him to seek the guv’s office.

“The request I run for something was pretty intense,” Feingold said in a brief interview with WisPolitics.com.

Feingold put on his tradition hospitality suite for a state Dem convention, serving Sloppy Joe’s. Backers lined up to speak with him in the suite, and multiple convention attendees stopped Feingold on his way out the door to offer him encouragement to run, praise him for his work or just greet him.

Feingold, who lost his Senate seat in November, said he enjoyed returning to the convention.

"I love seeing all my friends and supporters from over the years," Feingold said.
