Former U.S. Senator Russ Feingold, who is running to gain his old seat back this November from Republican Ron Johnson, is launching a social media campaign in support of a policy that would allow students to refinance their student loans.
According to the Capital Times, the social media campaign will feature photos and short vignettes from University of Wisconsin students and graduates.
The campaign aims to illustrate the stark difference in opinion between Feingold and Republican Sen. Ron Johnson when it comes to addressing college affordability.
Johnson opposes the refinancing proposal, arguing instead that the federal government should avoid involvement in college financing.
