Republican Beer Mogul To Challenge Russ Feingold

Dick Leinenkugel, a beer mogul who is also a former Wisconsin labor secretary, is looking to unseat Senator Russ Feingold.

Political experts say Leinenkugel is starting off with name recognition because of his family’s beer business, but has to build people’s political awareness of him. They also say he’ll have to blunt criticism for serving 18 months in the administration of Democratic Gov. Jim Doyle.

Feingold’s campaign said Leinenkugel can’t seem to decide if he’s running on his record or running away from it.
