Placeholder Image
MADISON (AP) - Republicans pounced on reports Monday that the political action committee founded by former Democratic U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold spent only 5 percent of its income on federal candidates and political parties. Feingold, who is running to return to the Senate, defended the group's work and labeled GOP criticism as the first attack of the 2016 race. Feingold, who was defeated by Republican Sen. Ron Johnson in 2010, announced last month that he is seeking a rematch in 2016.
