Warren, Feingold rally 1,000-plus at Overture CenterBy Andrew Bahl | Oct. 9, 2016
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.
