The Hill reports:

Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wis.) said he has absolutely no reservations about appearing in Wisconsin on Monday with President Obama.

Feingold, a liberal Democrat who's facing a tough reelection battle this fall, said he was proud to appear with Obama as the president arrived in Wisconsin Monday morning for a speech on the economy and a fundraiser.

"I'm pleased to stand with this president any time and anywhere and defend what we've done and what we're doing," the senator added.
