Who says bipartisanship is dead? Republican Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., delivered an eloquent speech Tuesday bidding adieu to his Democratic colleague Russ Feingold of Wisconsin, who lost to Republican Ron Johnson in this month’s election, Politico reports.
“I have to confess I think the Senate will be a much poorer place without Russ Feingold in it,” McCain said on the Senate floor. The two senators cooperated to produce the McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform bill in 2002, a law that drew conservatives’ ire.
“We are of different parties, and our political views are often opposed,” McCain said. “But where we agreed – on wasteful spending, ethics reform, campaign finance reform and other issues – it was a privilege to fight alongside and not against Russ Feingold.”
