Democratic Sen. Russ Feingold will be seeking his third six-year term this November. A top issue for Feingold has always been the need for campaign finance reform, but he says that's not the only issue he would focus on.

“Insurance, the need to have healthcare coverage for all Americans and the fact that we've lost jobs because of these bad trade agreements, so these are the issues I'm talking about."

Republicans have been very critical of Feingold. They say he's touting campaign finance reform to become more famous not because it's what he thinks voters want.

Feingold will go up against one of four Republican challengers this fall. They are car dealer Russ Darrow, State Sen. Bob Welch, construction executive Tim Michels and attorney Robert Gerald Lorge.
