Russ Feingold, through his Progressive Patriots Fund PAC website, is hosting an online listening session just like he does all throughout Wisconsin.
You can sign up here for the text-based chat session if you wish. Feingold is usually very straightforward, and this will probably be interesting. It is scheduled for Friday (tomorrow) at 10:30 EST. I have a job interview at 10 central, so I won't be able to attend, but hopefully other bloggers will be able to ask some great questions.
Feingold is the most corageous, honest, plain-spoken, no-bullshit politician around. And I hope his support continues to grow as a presidential hopeful in 2008. Feingold already has tremendous support from the netroots. If you want more information about how to support a Feingold run for President in 2008, you can visit this site!

Milwaukee, WI. - U.S. Senator Russ Feingold’s Progressive Patriots Fund announced today that Senator Feingold will hold the first ever nationwide online Listening Session this Friday March 10, 2006 at 10:30am EST.
“When I first ran for the U.S. Senate in 1992, I promised to hold an open, town hall style meeting, or Listening Session, in each of Wisconsin's 72 counties, every single year.” Feingold said. “These meetings are one of my favorite things about being a U.S. Senator. They give me the opportunity to hear first hand what people are concerned about and, more importantly, they help me do my job better.”
In addition to the over 950 Listening Sessions he has held in Wisconsin, Feingold has held similar Listening Sessions in Alabama, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, and Vermont.
Feingold’s first ever online Listening Session will give people from around the country the opportunity to ask questions, say what's on their minds, or just see what others are talking about.
People interested in participating in Feingold’s online Listening Session can sign up at: www.progressivepatriotsfund.com.
