There has been a fair amount of chatter about President Obama facing a primary challenge from the left in 2012, and Russ Feingold’s name has been tossed around.
Feingold’s loss tonight will certainly add more weight to these rumors, however improbable they may seem. People will certainly be talking about/attempting to deconstruct this line from Feingold’s concession speech: “So it’s on to the next fight. It’s on to the next battle. It’s on to 2012, and it is on to our next adventure.”
