DescriptionFormer Gov. Tommy Thompson may be getting more serious about challenging U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold. But that doesn't seem to bother Feingold. Indeed, Feingold says, he's "excited" about running "a great race" against the former Bush administration Cabinet member.

Talk of a Thompson run ramped up Sunday when former Wisconsin Commerce Secretary Bill McCoshen appeared on the television program "Upfront with Mike Gousha" to say his old boss and close friend is leaning more and more toward mounting the challenge to Feingold.

"I've been around Tommy now for almost 20 years," said McCoshen, who recalled three of Thompson's four successful gubernatorial runs. "I've been involved in the ‘90 campaign, the '94 campaign, the '98 campaign, and some of his flirtations with races during the 2000s. This is the most serious I've seen him ..."

McCoshen said he expected to see "some additional evidence here very shortly that this thing is ramping itself up."
