MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Former U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold is one of two Wisconsin residents who has been tapped to serve as national "co-chairs" for President Barack Obama's re-election campaign.
Feingold and Obama campaign volunteer Felesia Martin of Milwaukee were announced Wednesday as two of the 35 honorary campaign co-chairs.
Obama's campaign says the co-chairs will serve as ambassadors for the president, advise the campaign on key issues and help engage and mobilize voters across the country.
Other announced co-chairs include Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, and actress Eva Longoria.
