Former U.S. Senator Feingold visits Walkerville


MADISON (WKOW) -- Former U.S. Senator Russ Feingold visited Walkerville Sunday night.

He's supporting protesters who are against the Governor's budget plan.

"We are here because we will not stop until we win, until this is over," said former Democratic U.S. Senator Russ Feingold during a speech at Walkerville.

Speaking in front of hundreds, former U.S. Senator Russ Feingold showed his support for protesters, in anticipation of the biennial budget hitting the assembly floor Tuesday.

"I'm here today you're here today to say done abuse our budget process in the next few weeks we'll protest it and we'll continue to protest it if you do so," said Feingold.

He also spoke against Governor Scott Walker's revised Budget Repair Bill, taking away most collective bargaining rights for public employees.

"We have to change the people running our state government," said Feingold.

The former U.S. Senator said he's thinking about his political future.

"I'm thinking about deciding to run for anything or whatever that would be I don't think about it all the time. I am not thinking about any office in particular I'm thinking about changing these policies," said Feingold.
