Surprise! Russ Feingold is running for Senate again!

From The Huffington Post:

WASHINGTON -- Progressive Democrat Russ Feingold announced Thursday that he will run for Senate in 2016, hoping to win back the seat he lost six years ago.

Feingold made his announcement in a video that was provided in advance to The Huffington Post. In it, he cites issues near and dear to his heart, like taking on corporations and big money in politics, as his justification for running.

"People tell me all the time that our politics and Washington are broken. And that multi-millionaires, billionaires and big corporations are calling the shots," Feingold says in the video. "They especially say this about the U.S. Senate, and itís hard not to agree. But what are we going to do? Get rid of the Senate?

ďActually, no one Iíve listened to says we should throw in the towel and give up -- and I donít think that either," he adds. "Instead, letís fight together for change. That means helping to bring back to the U.S. Senate strong independence, bipartisanship and honesty."
