A super PAC launched this ad at the end of September attacking former Wisconsin Democratic Sen. Russ Feingold for voting in favor of partial-birth abortion eight times:
Great news, given Republicans are so seldom willing to put the Democrats’ abortion extremism in front of voters.
The latest polling shows a big drop in support for Feingold — he’s lost 5 points since October 6th. Republican Ron Johnson is now within 3 points. Surely many factors are in play, but punching Feingold on late-term abortions clearly didn’t hurt.
