The fundraising appeal wasn't for Feingold's Progressive Patriots Fund. Instead, it was for his Senate campaign fund. So what's going on?
Feingold was re-elected in 2004. He's unlikely to face a serious challenger in 2010, and, even if he does, why the hell is he raising money now? Here we are roughly one month and two weeks out from a very pivotal election, and Feingold sends out a fundraising appeal that competes with attempts by other candidates who are actually running for election or re-election this year.
Is this money he would simply convert from his Senate campaign fund over to a presidential campaign fund? I don't know all of the in's and out's of fundraising, but, unless there's a very good explanation that I'm missing, this fundraising appeal is annoying.
