Feingold easily defeats challenger

MADISON (AP) - Democrat Russ Feingold has easily dispatched his longshot primary challenger to set up a rematch with Republican U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson.

Feingold defeated Kenosha private detective and polygraph examiner Scott Harbach. Harbach acknowledged his bid was a longshot on his campaign website.

Feingold's win clears the way for him to face Johnson in the Nov. 8 general election. Johnson ousted Feingold, an 18-year incumbent, from the Senate in 2010.

Their rematch is one of the most closely watched races as Democrats look to regain control of the chamber heading into 2017.
