Feingold served as a state legislator in Madison before his first election to the Senate in 1992. Feingold says the question for voters is, "Who is this guy going to vote with?"

The debate aired on Channel 12. Russ Feingold are preparing for their second and final debate with just three weeks left in one of the nation's most closely watched Senate races.
Johnson's campaign was buoyed by an October 9 CBS News Battleground Tracker poll that showed the race within the margin of error, with Feingold ahead by 2 points. Johnson is a first-term Senator who owned and operated a plastics manufacturing company in Oshkosh before defeating Feingold for his seat in 2010.
