Feingold, Johnson to skip conventions
Placeholder Image
MADISON (AP) - Don't look for incumbent Sen. Ron Johnson at the Republican National Convention next week in Cleveland. He's skipping the event, just as his Democratic challenger Russ Feingold is not attending his party's national convention the following week in Philadelphia. The candidates' decision not to attend either convention - where they could have snared a speaking spot broadcast to millions nationwide - comes as a new poll shows their closely-watched Senate race tightening.
