So, Politi Fact Wisconsin is raising the yellow caution flag.Johnson did not support a Senate amendment to acknowledge a man-made role in climate change and expressed skepticism each of the few times he acknowledged humans might contribute.The Democratic Party gained an average of 5 Senate seats in the last two presidential elections, and the Republican Party picked up an average of 7.5 seats in the last two midterms. He defeated incumbent Russ Feingold (D), Rob Taylor (Constitution Party of Wisconsin), Ernest J.

In election campaigns, attack ads fill the airwaves like decals cover the body of a NASCAR race car. (Visit Politi Fact for more fact checks that we’ll post in the Senate race ahead of election day.) Johnson "doesn't even believe that there's a man-made role in climate change." Our rating: Mostly True. Unless otherwise noted, the attack was made by one against the other.Walker's decision to campaign with Johnson stands in contrast to his lack of appearances with Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.The last two times Trump has been in Wisconsin -- he visited Waukesha in late September and Green Bay last week -- Walker has been absent.
"I think that the people of the state are going to decide this race based on who stands with the working and middle income families in this state, and who stands with the big corporations," Feingold said.
Though Feingold cast tax-related votes that many times, more than half of those came on non-binding resolutions that took a position in favor of raising taxes but did not raise taxes by themselves.
The Americans for Prosperity claim also does not account for the large number of votes that were actually against a tax cut, not in favor of a tax increase.
Haddock walked across the country in support of campaign finance reform in 1999. Feingold said going into that race he understood the landscape with the country still emerging from the Great Recession and Republicans angered at Feingold and other Democrats for approving the Affordable Care Act and an economic stimulus bill. Feingold chose to stand for re-election and defend his record."I certainly know now, not only isn't it the end of the world if you lose an election, it can lead to a very good life," he said. And who knows, if it hadn't been for all the bad stuff that has happened in Wisconsin the last few years, I'm not sure I would have been running again.
Russ Feingold walk with Doris "Granny D" Haddock, 91, to a news conference about campaign finance reform on March 19, 2001. 2, 2010, and Feingold and his two daughters were on their way to an election night party turned political wake. In 2010, after 18 years in the Senate, his political career came to an abrupt halt as Republicans ousted Democrats across the country in a wave election. But that doesn't quench my desire to bring the people of the state back together.
In presenting the claims, we alternate between an attack made on Johnson and an attack made on Feingold.
