Feingold visits Madison campaign office to fire up volunteers

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) -- Democratic Candidate for US Senate Russ Feingold stopped by a campaign office in Madison to fire up volunteers to help get out the vote.

Feingold laid out the stakes of the election, including his tight battle between Sen. Ron Johnson, calling out volunteers to work hard the next few days before the election.

"We need the maximum work, because it is a volatile election year, you never know what's going to happen with turnout," said Feingold. "The indication are our voters are far more enthusiastic then theirs, but we're not gonna rely on that."

Feingold also took time during his speech to thank several student volunteers helping with the campaign.

"It was amazing, Russ has been a role model for me," said UW Sophomore Nate Fitzhenry, who started volunteering for the campaign in January, now working for several hours a day leading up to the election. "We are knocking all of the doors in the city of Madison and across the state, and seeing that mobilization at the polls is gonna be a really remarkable moment for me."

Volunteers will continue working four shifts a day to make sure they are reaching as many supporters' households around Madison as they can to encourage them to go out and vote.
