Withdrawing from the Senate Race

With a heavy heart, I am withdrawing my candidacy from the United States Senate race against Russ Feingold.  I am so grateful for the support of Wisconsinites that are hungry for real fiscal conservatism and a change in their government. 

No matter how much I want to stay in and fight, I feel the honorable thing to do is to exit.   I want you to know that my campaign team and I have analyzed the situation, and all the options, thoroughly.  This is not a decision I made lightly. 

When I started this effort, I had two goals: first, to turn this country around before it's too late and second, to prove that Russ Feingold could be beat.  I consider my campaign successful as I did prove that Russ Feingold can be beaten, and I did so running an honest, clean campaign like any Eagle Scout would.  Last October, the polls showed us down double-digits and few had heard my name outside of Dane County.  Recent polling now shows that we have closed within the margin of error.

As I travelled across this great State, county-to-county, city-to-city and handshake-to-handshake, I came to realize that the vast number of people I've met also believe that we need to bring real, structural change to Washington. 

I hope I can count on your support to continue to fight for fundamental change, such as the solutions I presented in my Patriots' Bill of Rights.  I urge you to go topatriotsbillofrights.org and sign the Patriots' Bill of Rights.  Just as our politicians try govern us, so now we must govern them.

I will also continue writing my monthly column for  InBusiness Magazine in Madison, commenting on politics as I see it, from Madison city politics to the state and federal level.  For ten years, I have also written a quarterly economic report for my own shareholders that I am now making available to the public, which can be found online. I cannot begin to express my sincere gratitude to all of the people I've met on the trail who have supported me, from those who have volunteered on my campaign, to those who have provided financial support, to the thousands of honest, hardworking Americans that I met as I traveled the state over the last seven months.  Thank you!  And thank you to all those who lent a hand: the volunteers, the delegates, and the Party.  I wish God's blessings on my two opponents, David Westlake and Ron Johnson. 

I also want to thank my wife and children for their incredible show of support, patience and tolerance during a time-consuming campaign.  It's time for me to spend some quality time with my family and enjoy the beautiful Wisconsin summer we all know and love. 

The memories that I now have and the people that I've met over the course of my campaign are a treasure that will always remain.  I'll continue to be involved in trying to help get this country turned around, but it's time for a step back to consider my options. 

Please stay in touch with me as we continue to build on our successes in making our country, our state and theRepublican Party great, again!

Most Sincerely,

Terrence Wall

Terrence Gets a Big Endorsement

Today, our campaign got a big boost by receiving the endorsement of former Wisconsin Governor Scott McCallum.

"Terrence Wall has balanced budgets for the last 20 years as a small business owner. That's exactly the kind of experience we need in Washington today. I'm endorsing Terrence because I know he will stand up to the power brokers in Washington - Democrats or Republicans - and fight for a balanced budget that won't saddle our children with any more debt. As Governor, I wasn't afraid to propose true spending cutes, and I know Terrence won't be either."

- Former Wisconsin Governor Scott McCallum

Governor McCallum is a true fiscal conservative who wasn't afraid to buck the system and Terrence is honored to receive his endorsement. It's one more sign that our campaign is gaining momentum.

In Case You Missed It

Terrence also made a pledge to the people of Wisconsin that he would never vote for an unbalanced budget. For too long, Democrats and Republicans have been mortgaging our children's future and Terrence finally said, "enough is enough."

So that you can always hold him accountable for his pledge, you can find it on our website, TerrenceWall.com. It will remain posted there until Terrence wins in November. After that, he'll post it on his official Senate website so the voters of Wisconsin can always hold him accountable.

Drawing a Line in the Sand

I am drawing a line in the sand on government spending. As I have traveled Wisconsin the last six months, one theme that I hear in all corners of our state is that people just don't trust our elected officials anymore. Too many of them campaign against wasteful spending in Wisconsin and then turn around and vote for billions and billions in new spending in Washington.

I am different.

I am a businessman, not a politician, so I don't take promises lightly. In the business world, one's word is one's bond, so I make my words count.

With that in mind, I want to make clear that I'm not simply promising that I'll try to control spending, I am making a solemn pledge to the People of Wisconsin:

I will never vote for a budget that's not balanced. Period.

I entered this race because I simply can not tolerate the continued out-of-control spending in Washington. As I look at my two young daughters, I know that our government is spending away their future before they've been allowed to live it. Before either one of them ever earns their first paycheck, they will already owe tens of thousands of dollars each towards our national debt. It's simply unacceptable.

With the media reporting that the United States reported its 19th straight month of deficit spending and the Bank of England reporting that our country is facing the same problems as the now bankrupt Greece, we must act now.

I'm making my pledge in writing and putting it on my campaign website for the duration of my campaign. When I'm elected this November, I will put that same pledge on my official Senate website to ensure that throughout my term, voters will hold me accountable for my pledge.

Wisconsin deserves no less.

Obey's out, but what about Feingold? Bonus: New TV Commercial

You may have heard the news this week that 41-yearincumbent Congressman Dave Obey (D-Wausau) hasdecided to retire rather than face a tough reelection against rising Republican star Sean Duffy.  This is great news for Sean and great news for our party.  It illustrates how dire the challenge is for incumbent Democrats likeRuss Feingold this November.

To seize on the opportunity, our campaign launched its 2nd television commercial this week.  The ad is called "Rebuild," and will air on stations statewide.  I hope you'll take a moment to watch it on our website by clicking on the link to the right.

The ad focuses on Terrence's beginnings, fixing-up old buildings and investing the profits into expanding his business and creating jobs.  Throughout his life, whether it was the Boy Scouts needing a new office, the Madison Children's Hospital needing to be remodeled or the Henry Vilas Zoo needing rejuvenation, Terrence has stepped up to solve the challenge.

At a time when Washington is as broken as that first building, our state and nation need someone like Terrence who knows how to balance budgets, control spending, reduce deficits and create jobs.

Knowing he is vulnerable, Russ Feingold recently began spending his $4 million war chest on a misleading television ad trying to paper over his record of wasteful spending and record deficits.  Terrence is committed to getting the truth out about Feingold's record and ensuring the people of Wisconsin face a real choice this November. 

You can help us stay on the air with a contribution today.  $10, $20, $50 or whatever you can afford will help us spread our message even more effectively.

As the political climate continues to improve for Republicans all over the country, Wisconsin is increasingly being recognized as the pivotal seat to return control of the Senate towards fiscal responsibility and limited government.  You're donation and, most importantly, your vote can truly make a difference this November.

It Begins Next Week

WKOW in Madison is reporting that Doyle Commerce Secretary Dick Leinenkugel will launch his campaign next week. After spending the last 18 months headlining Democrat fundraisers and even considering a run for governor as a Democrat, I know that his party switch has come as a surprise to many conservatives.

As his campaign begins, my campaign will continue to focus on the issues that matter to Wisconsin: creating jobs, controlling spending and lowering health care costs.

As a business owner, I have spent the last 20 years of my life creating jobs, balancing budgets, controlling costs and finding innovative ways to lower health care costs for my employees. Our nation is facing enormous challenges, but the solutions can only be found in the real world experience of political outsiders not the political world of career politicians.

Some pundits have suggested that I will face difficulty as a first-time candidate running against accomplished politicians like Dick Leinenkugel and Russ Feingold. I think they're wrong. As I've traveled the state over the last six months, I have heard the message loud and clear. Wisconsin is tired of career politicians. They're demanding an honest outsider who will go to Washington and fight for them.

And the polls support my position. Today's Rasmussen poll shows me gaining substantial ground against Feingold, now only six points behind. I am also ahead of the other potential Republican candidates, with Westlake behind by 11 points and Leinenkugel behind by 12 points.

I need your help to stand up to Russ Feingold and Jim Doyle's favorite Republican.

My campaign issued a strong first quarter fundraising report with more than $1 million cash on hand. In particular, we received tremendous support from grassroots donors. Your contribution of $10, $20, $50, $100 or more will help us continue our fight against Russ Feingold's national network of far-left activists. I hope I can count on you to join our cause and contribute to our campaign.

Governor Thompson Made His Announcement

On Thursday, former Governor Tommy Thompson announced that he will not enter the race for the United States Senate.  I have appreciated Governor Thompson's generous advice and counsel over the last few months and his announcement today gives the voters a real opportunity to unite behind my campaign to restore common sense and fiscal sanity to Washington.

With the architect of Jim Doyle's toxic business climate threatening to enter the race for Senate as a "Republican," it is critical that we unite behind a true conservative who won't tolerate the status quo in Washington, DC.  My platform of cutting wasteful spending, using the free market to truly reform health care and demanding that the politicians actually follow the constitution is sorely needed in Washington.

The contrast couldn't be clearer:

  • I will cut taxes to spur job creation; Russ Feingold thinks the government creates jobs and raised taxes to pay for it.
  • I will cut wasteful spending; Russ Feingold voted for trillions in new "stimulus spending" that didn't stimulate and health care reform that didn't reform.
  • I will use the free market to lower health care costs; Russ Feingold wants to have government bureaucrats make your health care decisions.
  • I'm a businessman, not a politician; Russ Feingold has been living off the taxpayers since 1982.

And now that Jim Doyle's Commerce Secretary, Dick Leinenkugel, is readying his campaign for Senate – as a Republican, no less – true conservatives must be even more vigilante.  We can't allow Jim Doyle to hijack our primary. Please consider joining our campaign today. 

Your generous contribution of $10, $20, $50, $100 or more will help us take our message to the voters and hold Russ Feingold accountable.  With your help, we can take back our government in November.

Feingold Did It Again

Russ Feingold thought ObamaCare was good enough to force on Wisconsin, but he doesn't think it's good enough for his own health care. That's why he voted to exempt himself and other senators from its provisions in a late night vote on Wednesday. Republicans offered two amendments which would have included Russ and other senators under the same mandates of his trillion-dollar government health care takeover.

Russ voted NO. And he didn't stop there. Russ cast other bad votes too:

  • AGAINST removing the massive tax hikes contained in the health care bill,
  • AGAINST a prohibition on giving taxpayer-funded Viagra to sex offenders, and 
  • AGAINST removing the backroom deals used to buy the votes of his colleagues.

Back home, Russ tells a different story. In fact, he assured a crowd of people in Mercer he'd LOVE to sign up for ObamaCare if he could.

"One audience member pointed to the generous health benefits lawmakers enjoy and wondered if Feingold would pledge to take the same health insurance that Congress will make the rest of us take.

"I will support a law that brings us under it," he said. "If I am eligible, I will join it. If I can be a part of the system, I will be." - The Lakeland Times, August 25, 2009

When Russ got back to Washington, he DID have a chance to sign up for the same plan he forced on Wisconsin - TWICE. And both times, he voted no.

Senate Amendment 3586 to H.R. 4872 (Feingold NAY) - To enroll Members of Congress in the Medicaid program.

Senate Amendment 3564 to H.R. 4872 (Feingold NAY) - To make sure the President, Cabinet Members, all White House staff and Congressional Committee and Leadership staff are purchasing health insurance through the health insurance exchanges established by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

Terrence Wall will be a Senator of which we can all be proud. He won't say one thing in Wisconsin and vote another way in Washington. Terrence will vote with the people of Wisconsin and Repeal, Refund and Replace Russ Feingold's trillion-dollar health care takeover.

You Can Still Stop ObamaCare

Russ Feingold, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid have used every trick in the book to pass their unpopular government-run health care takeover and Sunday night they moved one step closer.

In a late night vote on Sunday, the U.S. House of Representativespassed ObamaCare on a strict party-line vote.  After weeks of arm-twisting and threats of political retribution, the Democrats could still only muster the thinnest of margins.  In fact, the only thing bipartisan about the vote was the opposition, which saw 34 Democrats join all of the Republicans in opposing this dangerous bill.

But this fight is not over.  The Senate must now take up the changes made by the House and a process called reconciliation.  This process, which rejects two centuries of Senate precedence, would allow the Democrats to ram the bill through over the objections of the American People.

In fact, Russ Feingold used to be against reconciliation, before flip-flopping at the request of his party leaders.  So much for principle.  So much for independent thinking.

You can still help stop this government takeover.  Sign our health care petition today to let Russ Feingold know where Wisconsin stands on this issue.  I will forward all signers to Russ Feingold to make sure he knows that Wisconsin doesn't want this bill.

Let's Get Working!

Terrence Wall

P.S.  You can help support my pledge to repeal ObamaCare as your next US Senator by making a contribution of $10, $20, $50 or $100 today.  Our first round of TV ads were very successful and have put us within striking distance.  Help put us over the top.

Help Defeat Obama-Feingold Health Care Takeover

As President Obama and Nancy Pelosi continue to twist arms and break rules to pass their health care takeover scheme, it's time for the people of Wisconsin to stand up and make our voices heard. 

While too many Americans are looking for work, too many Democrats like Russ Feingold are looking for ways around the Constitution.

Even as I type, liberal special interests are making plans to ram ObamaCare through Congress using legislative tricks like "Reconciliation" and the "Slaughter Rule," which are designed to pass the bill without the Democrats having to take a vote.  These shady tactics reject two centuries of precedent and are considered unconstitutional by most experts - but that's not stopping Nancy Pelosi. 

Feingold has flip-flopped on Reconciliation.  He now says he supports this rejection of Senate rules when only a year ago he was against it.  And even the Liberal Washington Post has condemned the use of the Slaughter Rule.

You can help put a stop to this now by contacting wavering Democrats in Washington and telling them to say no.  Contact Senator Russ Feingold and tell him to condemn these tactics.  Tell Congressmen ObeyKagenKind,Baldwin and Moore to vote against this bill which will increase health care costs, lower quality of health care, run up massive debts and put the government between you and your doctor.

Even many of Russ Feingold's fellow Democrats are condemning these tactics, so why won't he?

You can send a message to Feingold that his history of saying one thing in Wisconsin and doing another in Washington won't be tolerated any longer.  By donating $10, $20, $50 or $100, you can help us put an end to the doublespeak and trickery.

There is still time to defeat ObamaCare and send a message that we can reform health care without a big government takeover, but it will take your help!

Bayh's Bombshell Drops on Feingold

On Monday, Democrat US Senator Evan Bayh (D-Indiana) announced his retirement with this bombshell:

"For some time, I've had a growing conviction that congress is not operating as it should.  There is much too much partisanship and not enough progress.  Too much narrow ideology and not enough practical problem solving.  Even at a time of enormous national challenge, the people's business is not getting done."

And Sen. Bayh didn't stop there.  The very next day in an interview with CBS News, Bayh said:

"If I could create one job in the private sector by helping to grow a business, that would be one more than Congress has created in the last six months."

It was the classic Washington scandal – a politician told the truth.  Take a moment to watch our latest video connecting Bayh's Bombshell to Sen. Russ Feingold's 18 years missing in action on job creation.

More than one year since Feingold voted for the $787 billion so-called 'stimulus' bill, America is still waiting for the jobs.  We were told that it was necessary to keep unemployment from going above 8%.  Now after 12 consecutive months of unemployment above 8%, we know that the stimulus bill was a failure.  

Worse, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has run a series of investigative reports detailing cases of double counting jobs created by the stimulusshoddy workmanship on stimulus projectsjob reports rife with errors, and how the White House has actually stopped trying to keep track of jobs created.

The career politicians in Washington created this mess.  Reelecting them is only going to mean more of the same.  Please consider donating $10 today to my campaign.  I'm an entrepreneur and small business owner, not a career politician.  I'm eager to put my 20-year record of job creation to work on behalf of all Wisconsinites.

Media Analysis Vindicates Terrence on Income Taxes

As many of you know, Russ Feingold and his cronies have been desperate to mislead the voters into thinking that Terrence has done something wrong when it comes to his income taxes.  Feingold is slinging mud far earlier than he ever has before in order to hide from his votes for the nearly trillion-dollar "stimulus" boondoggle and the $1.5 trillion government health care takeover on Christmas Eve.  And the liberal media, always happy to play along, has been ignoring the truth for weeks.

THAT ENDS TODAY.  This morning, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel published an independent review of Terrence's income taxes concluding Terrence has, "no legal problems related to his taxes."  It exposes the Democrats' attacks as nothing more than political posturing, even quoting one UW-Madison professor saying, "it doesn't matter how completely legal this may have been."

Call me old fashioned, but I think the truth matters.  Below you will find a detailed response to the lies from the Democrats, but here's the short version: the Wisconsin Department of Revenue, Terrence's own tax returns, his accountants at the respected firm of Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP, and now the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel all agree that he's paid every penny he owes in personal income taxes and that his taxes were prepared in full accordance with the law.

But that hasn't stopped Russ Feingold and his friends from spreading lies and distortions.  With recent polling showing more people disapproving of his job performance than approving of it, it's clear Russ Feingold is scared. 

You can help combat the lies by donating $10 to Terrence's campaign today.  We recently began airing astatewide television ad holding Feingold accountable for his vote for the ObamaCare debacle and your contribution can help us stay on the air even longer.  You can help ensure Russ Feingold can't hide from his record.

In the article, Christian Schneider of the Wisconsin Policy Research Institute echoed what Terrence has been saying all along, "If the money these businesses would have paid to the government instead is re-invested back into their companies to create jobs, and therefore create even more taxpayers, it ends up being a net positive for the state."

Don't let Russ Feingold hijack this election with lies and distortions.  We owe it to Wisconsin to fight for the truth.  Now that Feingold's attacks have been exposed by the media for the shameful distortions that they are, it's time to get back to discussing the issues that affect the lives of hard-working Wisconsinites.

THE REAL DETAILS… INCOME TAXES AND DELAWARE BUSINESS REGISTRATIONS 

As the media continues to repeat untruths from the Democratic Party of Wisconsin that Terrence doesn't pay his taxes, please keep the following points in mind.

  • Terrence has always paid every dime of income taxes that he's owed.
  • The Department of Revenue has made clear that Terrence had no net tax liability in the years he has been criticized for not paying income taxes.  So, it wasn't that he didn't pay income taxes, it was that he had no income tax liability to pay.
  • Terrence has also released his tax returns showing that he had no net tax liability in those years.
  • Baker, Tilly, Virchow, Krause, LLP, Terrence's tax accountants, have released a letter indicating that Terrence's taxes were all prepared in full accordance with the law.

Terrence and his companies pay millions of dollars in taxes each year.

  • The untruths from the Democrats center around personal income taxes, but in the last three years, Terrence and his businesses have paid nearly $16 million in other taxes.
  • This includes:
  • $14.9 million in real estate taxes
  • $694,000 in Medicare and FICA taxes
  • $180,000 in sales and use taxes
  • $77,000 in state unemployment taxes
  • $21,000 in federal unemployment taxes

Terrence has always paid the income taxes he owes, but in some years has not owed anypersonal income taxes.

  • The government often encourages certain behaviors by creating tax credits and deductions such as allowing home mortgage payments to be tax deductible, make owning a home more affordable.
  • Just like millions of taxpayers in Wisconsin, Terrence receives tax credits and deductions that reduce the amount of personal income taxes he owes, sometimes reducing it to zero.
  • Building Depreciation – When filing their taxes, business owners subtract their expenses from their revenues to determine profits, which are then taxed.  When someone builds a newcommercial building, a substantial business expense, the tax code requires them to prorate that expense over 39 years, a process known as depreciation.  In simple terms, if a business owner builds a $39 million building, he must deduct $1 million per year for 39 years from the revenues he earns on that building.  Unless the revenues in any given year exceeded $1 million, there would be no net profit to tax, leaving zero liability.  As the owner of more than 40 commercial buildings, Terrence must depreciate a large amount every year.  Depreciation is merely a tax deferral, however, meaning the owner will pay considerable personal income taxes when the building is sold.
  • Angel Investor Tax Credits – Act 255, signed by Gov. Doyle, gives a 25% tax credit to individuals who invest in startup companies and entrepreneurs.  So, an individual who invests $100,000 in a startup company receives a $25,000 credit on their income taxes.  Unless the individual owed more than $25,000 in taxes, his liability would be changed to zero.  As the founder and largest investor in DaneVest Tech Fund, a multi-million fund that invests in startup companies, Terrence receives a substantial credit from Act 255 which reduces hispersonal income tax liability.
  • Charitable Deductions – All taxpayers can receive deductions of various amounts for theircharitable contributions.  As the founder and largest investor in the Wisconsin Foundation, acharitable organization that contributes hundreds of thousands of dollars to charitable causes, Terrence receives a substantial deduction on his personal income taxes.  Terrence makes large contributions to the Boy  and Girl Scouts, the UW Children's Hospital and the University of Wisconsin Foundation.
  • Across Wisconsin, thousands of jobs have been created and thousands of people have been helped by charities when individuals and business owners utilize these tax incentives Every new commercial building constructed in our state creates jobs, often hundreds of jobs, and provides space where small business owners can grow their businesses and create even more jobs.  This is exactly why the government creates incentives for these kinds of developments, to encourage people with capital to make investments in job creating opportunities.

Registering a business in Delaware does not affect where it pays taxes.

  • Often at the request of a lender or investor, Terrence has registered some of his companies in Delaware due to the better legal protections for business owners.
  • Terrence has more than 100 separate companies registered in Wisconsin and only 16 registered in Delaware.
  • All of the companies registered in Delaware are organized as Limited Liability Corporations (LLCs) or S-Corporations.  Both of these types of companies do not pay separate corporate income taxes, but rather pass through their profits or losses to the personal income taxes of their owners, to be paid in the state where the owner lives.
  • Since Terrence lives in Wisconsin, any income taxes owed by these companies would be paid here, not in Delaware.

Bottom Line

Voters will have a choice between a candidate with a 20-year record of job creation and growing the economy, and a 28-year career politician who is part of the crowd that is recklessly spending tax dollars, creating a massive federal debt and trying to put government in charge of healthcare.  Russ Feingold knows he compares poorly, and that's why he's falsely attacking Terrence.

Let's Hold Russ Feingold Accountable

Today we're beginning the next phase of our campaign to hold Russ Feingold accountable for his votes in Washington, D.C.  For too long, Sen. Feingold has been voting one way in Washington and campaigning another way in Wisconsin.

That must end now.Fed Up

Beginning this afternoon, we are launching the first television ad of the campaign on statewide broadcast andcable television.  It's called, "Fed Up" and it features footage from Sen. Feingold's so-called listening sessions.

The ad clearly demonstrates what we've known for years: Feingold may hold listening sessions, but he isn't really listening to the people of Wisconsin.  If he was, he never would have voted for a health care bill on Christmas Eve, hoping you wouldn't notice his support for the Louisiana Purchase or theCornhusker Kickback – two backroom deals that benefit other states at the expense of Wisconsin.

Please consider donating $10 in 2010 to tell Feingold that you've had enough of trillion-dollar health care takeover schemes and stimulus boondoggles that haven't worked.

Also check out our ongoing series, Russ vs. Reality, where we continue to hold Sen. Feingold accountable for his double talk.  This week's edition compares Sen. Feingold's claims that the stimulus bill would create jobs with the reality that it hasn't.

And as always, you can follow all the latest news and updates from the trail on Facebook and Twitter.

Send Career Politicians a Message

This morning, the Labor Department reported that employers unexpectedly cut 20,000 more jobs in January.  The Department also issued revised data showing 150,000 jobs were lost in December instead of the 85,000 previously reported.

While the unemployment number dropped to 9.7%, it was because 366,000 people simply stopped looking for work in January, the Labor Department reported.  And the number of long-term unemployed workers, those out of work for at least 27 weeks, rose to 6.3 million.

The politicians in Washington have been telling us for more than a year that they're trying to fix the problem, but it is only getting worse.  We simply cannot continue to elect the same politicians, like Russ Feingold, that got us into this mess.

Check out our new web video in honor of this weekend's Big Game reminding us all what happens when we do something over and over again, expecting a different result.

If you want to send the career politicians in Washington a message, please consider contributing $10 in 2010.  With your help and support, we can take back our government.

Electing the same old politicians year-after-year and expecting different results has gotten us nowhere.  We need fresh ideas from proven job creators, who are willing to go to Washington and turn things around.

Visit my Web site, TerrenceWall.com, to learn more about my 20-year record of creating thousands of jobs.  You can also learn more about my ideas for fixing our economy, reducing our crushing debt and lowering health care costs without a government takeover.  And be sure to follow our campaign's progress on Twitter and Facebook.

Dear Friend:

I wanted you to be among the first to know that next Tuesday and Wednesday, January 19th and 20th, I will be traveling the state and making a significant announcement regarding the 2010 United States Senate Race inWisconsin.  I will be holding press conferences in Madison, Milwaukee, Green Bay, Wausau, Eau Claire and La Crosse.  Details of the events can be found at my online headquarters, www.TerrenceWall.com.

Washington has gone way off-track.  There are simply too few jobs, too many taxes and far too many dollars wasted.  If our nation is to ever rebuild its economy, we need true job creators to get off the bench and into the game.  It's time to send home the career politicians who work harder at keeping their jobs than doing their jobs.  In short, it's time to take our government back.

Sen. Feingold has had 18 years to make Washington work for us.  Instead, he has supported trillions of dollars in new spending and a government takeover of our health care system that will make premiums more even expensive for average Americans and lower the quality of care we receive.  Our children and grandchildren will have to pay for Sen. Feingold's wasteful spending for years to come.

Even worse, Feingold is ignoring his constituents on health care. 

As we continue to ramp-up our campaign, I hope I can count on you to get involved to help take our country back. Russ Feingold needs to know that he can ignore his constituents no longer.

Please forward this e-mail to anyone you think may be interested in attending an announcement press conference. With your help and support we can build a statewide network that can go toe-to-toe with Sen. Feingold's extreme liberal base.  The stakes are too large and the issues too important to sit this race out.

Best regards,

Terrence Wall

Terrence Wall Takes In $500,000 in Less Than 7 Weeks for Feingold Challenge

[Middleton, Wisc…] In a sign of growing momentum, Terrence Wall today announced he has raised more than $500,000 in preparation for his candidacy for the United States Senate. “I am humbled by the support I have received as our campaign continues to ramp up,” Wall said.  “It will require significant resources to hold Sen. Feingold accountable for his misguided votes in Washington, DC.  I am committed, as our fourth quarter results show, to having the necessary resources to effectively communicate my message to the voters.

“Even as our fundraising continues, this campaign will consistently focus on solutions to the challenges Wisconsinites face in their daily lives – high unemployment, massive government deficits and increasing health care costs.  I simply will not allow Sen. Feingold to continue hiding from his votes for a so-called ‘stimulus’ that hasn’t stimulated the economy, massive new government spending programs that are mortgaging our children’s futures and a government takeover of our health care system that will not lower costs for working Americans.”
