Digital campaign shows more than 12,355 days in politics, will continue counting through November
Ron Johnson today launched a digital campaign featuring a Career Clock counting the number of days Senator Feingold has spent in politics – 12,355 as of this morning. The clock will continue counting each day between now and November, highlighting the decades Senator Feingold spent failing to address Wisconsinites’ concerns on national security and other issues.
“Senator Feingold’s 34 years in politics can be difficult to make sense of, so we thought it might help to take it one day at a time,” Johnson spokesman Brian Reisinger said. “From repeatedly voting against our security during his time in Washington to breaking promise after promise to the people of Wisconsin, career politicians like Senator Feingold need to be held accountable for decades of playing political games instead of getting results.”
See the Feingold Career Clock, which will appear on social media and online, here.
- The Feingold Career Clock counts each day Senator Feingold has spent in politics, starting with the earliest available public record: his victory in the Democratic primary for State Senate in 1982.
- Since that time, Senator Feingold has either been in public office, running for re-election, or heading Progressives United, the scam political organization he used to line his own pockets and set up his next political campaign.
- During his decades in politics, Senator Feingold has repeatedly taken positions that weaken our national security, from voting against provisions meant to protect against lone wolf terrorist attacks to calling President Obama’s reckless Iran deal “one of the greatest” things he has done.
- He has also broken promises on everything from campaign finance to federal spending, a stark contrast to Ron Johnson, who the Washington Examiner reported was named the “most productive member” of the Senate in a recent study of Congress.
