Political Support Jobs in Wisconsin

Senator Russ Feingold is seeking field organizers.  Sadly this opportunity does me no good, as I'm in Illinois, but unemployed folks in Wisconsin might want to take a look. 

I've always believed that campaigns are won and lost on the
ground. That's why I'm focused on building a strong grassroots
campaign that is organizing people in every Wisconsin community.
To date we've knocked on over 25,000 doors, amassed nearly
24,000 volunteers and opened 11 fully staffed field offices around
Wisconsin. Our field program is second to none, and we're
looking for qualified candidates to join our campaign team.

Enclosed is a job description including information on how to
apply. And feel free to forward this email along to your family,
friends and neighbors who might be a good fit.
