Sen: Brown (D) Selected by Feingold PAC as Progressive Patriot

Following an extensive national online poll, the political action committee of Sen. Russ Feingold (D-WI), the Progessive Patriots Fund, has selected senatorial candidate Rep. Sherrod Brown (D-Avon) as its newest Progressive Patriot candidate. For being chosen, Brown is the beneficiary of a national fund-raising email from Sen. Feingold. The annuncement also states that "the Progressive Patriot Fund has already contributed to [Brown's] campaign and sent a Patriot Corps staffer to help him."

Brown was chosen from a field of 18 Democratic candidates for the Senate. The others included such prominent names as Sheldon Whitehouse in Rhode Island, Ned Lamont in Connecticut, Jim Webb in Virginia, Ben Cardin in Maryland, Jon Tester in Montana, Claire McCaskill in Missouri, Bob Casey in Pennsylvania, and Harold Ford Jr in Tennessee.

Feingold describes the purpose of his PAC as "promoting a progressive reform agenda and supporting candidates across the country." The PAC has previously chosen three Progressive Patriot candidates in U.S. House of Representatives races and two in governors races, along with another candidate for U.S. Representative chosen at the YearlyKos convention.
