potus-russ-feingold"Russ is an honest, independent-minded public servant who's not driven by what's politically expedient; he's driven by what he knows is right for the people of Wisconsin," says the President.


MIDDLETON – President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden endorsed Russ’s bid for the U.S. Senate Friday. Citing Russ’s commitment to fighting for middle class and working families, President Obama and Vice President Biden announced their support for Russ.

"Russ Feingold is a proven champion for middle class families,” said President Obama. “He listens to the people of Wisconsin, and he's always led their fight for good-paying jobs, affordable college education, and a secure retirement. Russ is an honest, independent-minded public servant who's not driven by what's politically expedient; he's driven by what he knows is right for the people of Wisconsin. I'm proud to endorse him in his campaign for United States Senate," said Obama.

"Russ Feingold is a friend and a tireless advocate for the working families of Wisconsin,” said Vice President Biden. “We've fought together to grow our economy, raise wages for American workers, protect Social Security and clean up our campaign finance system. I'm happy to support his campaign for United States Senate, because I know the good work he'll continue to do for Wisconsin and our nation," said Biden.

“I’m proud to have the support of President Obama and Vice President Biden,” said Russ. “I’ve worked with both of them and share their commitment to our middle class and working families. In the past seven years, their leadership has guided us to a stronger economy, and I look forward to building on that progress by fighting to create even more opportunities for Wisconsin families.”

Rebecca BradleyJustice Bradley's vague explanations of her disgusting and hateful remarks in columns for the Marquette Tribune haven't passed the smell test so far. She owes Wisconsin more than a hollow apology, she owes us all an explanation of where she stands today.

Merrick GarlandMADISON - On Wednesday, March 16, President Barack Obama announced his nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to the United States Supreme Court. Judge Garland has served as the chief judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit since 1997.

Following this announcement, Rep. Dana Wachs (D-Eau Claire), the ranking Democrat on the Assembly Committee on Judiciary, expressed his support for Judge Garland and urged United States Senate Republicans, including Sen. Ron Johnson from Wisconsin, to do their job and give Judge Garland a hearing and a vote on confirmation.

dana_wachs“First of all, I’m very pleased with President Obama’s selection of Judge Garland for the Supreme Court,” said Wachs. “His extensive background, integrity, and outstanding legal acumen make him an ideal candidate for our nation’s highest court. I see no reason why Senate Republicans should not support him as many of them did when he was nominated to the U.S. Court of Appeals.”

In 1997, the moderate Garland was confirmed to his current position with bipartisan support, including support from seven current members of the Senate. Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), a former chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, has publicly expressed support of Garland in the past for the Supreme Court.

However, since the death of Justice Antonin Scalia in February, many Senate Republicans have said that they will block any nomination made by President Obama and will wait for the next President to make the appointment.

“Article II of the United States Constitution mandates that the President ‘shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint.......Judges of the Supreme Court,’” added Wachs. “There is no flexibility in this. Those who have sworn to uphold the Constitution are mandated to hold hearings and take action on the President's selection. As ranking Democrat on the Assembly Committee on Judiciary, I am asking that Senator Ron Johnson and his Republican Senate colleagues do their job! Hold a fair hearing and vote!”
