Today, former Senator Russ Feingold announced he is endorsing Marilyn Townsend for Dane County Judge.
“Marilyn will make an outstanding Dane County Judge,” Feingold said. “She is a first-rate attorney who has won important cases. As a municipal judge, Marilyn has demonstrated a commitment to fairness and equal justice, and she has the right temperament for the job.”
Feingold continued, “Further, her campaign is voluntarily limiting the amount of campaign contributions it will accept. There is too much money in judicial races, and it’s important that Marilyn has the courage and integrity to step up on this issue. Marilyn’s values, along with her combination of judicial and legal experience make her the best candidate for Dane County Circuit Court. I urge Dane County voters to join me in supporting her.”
“I am honored to earn Russ Feingold’s endorsement,” Townsend said. “His expertise in constitutional law, his knowledge of our courts and his commitment to a fair, impartial judiciary has been evident throughout his career and during his service on the Senate Judiciary Committee. It means a great deal to have earned Russ Feingold’s trust and confidence as the best candidate for Dane County Circuit Court.”
