Former U.S. senator from Wisconsin Russ Feingold announced he's running for the seat he once held, pitting him against the Republican who beat him in 2010, Ron Johnson.
"People tell me all the time that our politics and Washington are broken. And that multi-millionaires, billionaires and big corporations are calling the shots," Feingold said in an announcement video.
"Let’s fight together for change. That means helping to bring back to the U.S. Senate strong independence, bipartisanship and honesty," he added.
The poll numbers actually bode well for Feingold who held the seat for 18 years.
According to a Marquette University poll in April, Feingold led Johnson by 16 points in a hypothetical showdown.
