Warren, Feingold rally 1,000-plus at Overture Center

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., visited Madison Friday in an effort to rally younger voters around Democratic Senate candidate Russ Feingold. Feingold, who is locked in a tight race with incumbent Republican Ron Johnson, appeared hand-in-hand with Warren in front of a packed crowd at the Overture Center. “I’m here because Russ ... is a champion of justice,” Warren told the assembled crowd of roughly 1,000. While the event was intended to promote early voting, the two also took aim at Johnson and Republican nominee Donald Trump. “The Ronald and the Donald show—don’t let it happen,” Feingold implored, with Warren calling the business mogul a “sleazeball.” “This is now Donald Trump's party, and the party now reflects Donald Trump," Warren said. Little has changed in the Senate race since the last time Warren visited campus a year ago.

The poll was taken prior to the release of Trump’s crude remarks regarding women.

Walker suggests extended UW tuition freeze, no increase in funds for system

Gov. Scott Walker has indicated a desire to continue a freeze on in-state tuition at UW System schools, according to a letter released to state agencies last month.
