MADISON--Progressives United for Wisconsin, the political organization of Russ Feingold, the former United States senator, is endorsing Janis Ringhand for the 15th District state Senate seat.

“From her days as Evansville alderwoman and mayor to her time in the Wisconsin State Assembly, Janis has fought to keep government out of the hands of corporations and return it to the hands of the people,” said Cole Leystra, executive director for Progressives United for Wisconsin, quoted in Ringhand's news release. “Janis knows how to roll up her sleeves and work to restore our full voting rights, stand up for workers and reach across the aisle to get things done.”

Ringhand is the only announced candidate to replace Sen. Tim Cullen, D-Janesville, who is stepping down when his term ends next January. The election is Nov. 4.
