Dear Friends and Supporters,It's sad, as Russ is one of the politicians in this world that I genuinely admire. But I think he realizes that a campaign would be quixotic and there are some very strong candidates in the field.
On Sunday, November 12th in Racine, I will hold my 1000th Listening Session with the people of Wisconsin. Before reaching that milestone, I want you to know that I've decided to continue my role as Wisconsin's Junior Senator in the U.S. Senate and not to seek the Democratic nomination for President in 2008.
Well, at least I won't have split allegiances anymore.
I like Obama but I'm a bit leery of the fact that I keep hearing "Obama 2008" from the mocking mouths of Republican acquaintances.
