Competing Feingold Booths
Russ Feingold is so popular among Dem activists here, he has competing fan bases operating from two separate convo tables.
On the lower level is a Progressive Patriots Fund table supporting Feingold’s PAC. Take a quick trip up the escalator and you can find a Russ 2008 table supporting a potential Feingold bid for the presidency.
The volunteers at the Progressive Patriots Fund table say they aren’t working in collusion with the Russ 2008. But when asked if they supported a Russ prez run, one responded with an enthusiastic "Yes, I hope he runs."
Both tables have yellow flyers reading, "Don’t Spy on Me" in reference to the senator’s stance against the NSA wiretapping program.
"They’re stealing our slogan too!" joked the Progressive Patriots volunteer.
