While it’s still (technically) rumored that former Doyle Commerce Secretary Dick Leinenkugel will be mounting a bid for U.S. Senator Russ Feingold’s seat as a Republican, we’ve known for a while that something’s afoot. The latest sign is visible when one visits the leinenkugelforsenate.com web site:
That’s very clever, naming the server “Shhhh.” It prevents me from getting the idea that a man of the last name Leinenkugel will be running for the U.S. Senate. Nothing to see here, move along!
Even if it were to happen, Feingold is projected as the eventual winner by Republican-friendly pollster Rasmussen.
I still think he’s got more to worry about from Dave Westlake’s truly grassroots bid. It reminds me a bit of how Feingold beat two millionaires in 1992. Maybe that’s it: millionaires can’t beat him. (Are you listening, Terry and Dave?) What does that say about non-millionaires?
(He has since announced his candidacy to a stale response.)
