they have done it because they re ahead and, you know, the polls have shown they are ahead. i think what is interesting bout the two ads you showed, feingold had, he came out early strong against the transpacific partnership. he believes the trade deals hurt workers. johnson has not stated position as in manufacturing state. ou know, these deals don't go down as well as in other states. you know, an early move by feingold, he keeps with ng that issue and his ad, he drive its home, getting quintessential wisconsinites to talk about how allegedly are hurting american workers. it appears to be quite an adfonly because you are seeing a lot of it. host: couple quick questions. the presence of donald trump
at the top of the gop ticket this particular senate race and what are you looking for in coming weeks? guest: you know, it's difficult to say if the presence of trump played a role. running ahead of trump, but this was always, here, this is t wisconsin, it's a presidential republicans haven't won a presidential race here since senate, a republican senate candidate hasn't won in a year since 1980. it was always going to be an johnson, they for expected that and that is what we're seeing. in the coming weeks, i expect ads, probably more aggressive johnson heading down stretch. he, you know, he is behind the two debates could be interesting. one next friday night, that is wisconsin broadcasters, more appearance, a
