I just learned that Holy Joseph Isadore Lieberman works at a law firm that represents Donald Trump.

He worked at Kasowitz,Benson,Torres,and Friedman, a law firm in NYC that specializes in White Collar Criminal Defense right after he left the US Senate.Donald Trump is one of their clients.

Russ Feingold (D-WI)

If Russ Feingold wanted to get back into the US Senate, how come he did not run in 2012 when it was an open seat (Kohl-D was retiring), Obama was on the ballot and was favored to carry WI by high single digit margin. Feingold would have benefited from Obama's coattails. Feingold had a better shot of defeating Tommy Thompson in 2012 then defeating Ron Johnson in a rematch.
Russ Feingold then could have run for President in 2016 or be the Democratic Vice Presidential nominee. Tammy Baldwin would have been the Democratic US Senate nominee in 2016 against Ron Johnson. Tammy Baldwin-D could have defeated Johnson in 2016.

2018 OH US Senate Election- The reasons why Brown-D could lose re-election in 2018.

Previous OH US Senators like DeWine-R and Voinovich-R have lost re-election or retired after two terms in office. The previous OH US Senators that served more than two terms are Glenn-D (4 terms) and Metzenbaum-D (3 terms).
Brown-D is not popular the way Glenn-D and Metzenbaum-D were when they were in office. Brown's margin of victory in 2012 was narrower than his 2006 margin of victory.
Brown-D could also win re-election due to the fact voters don't want to give President Trump a blank check.
