Feingold gives first TV interview after campaign announcement

In his first interview since announcing that he'll run again for the U.S. Senate, Russ Feingold says he's running because he believes that people want an independent voice to represent Wisconsin.

Speaking to News 3 on Friday at his home in Middleton before leaving for a day of meetings, Feingold talked about why he wanted to run again after losing the race in 2010.

"The favorite thing I've ever had to do in my life is serving the people of Wisconsin, so obviously it is something I care about," Feingold said.

Feingold said he believes voters are frustrated with both the economy and the divisiveness in Washington.

"They want people to work on a bipartisan basis that are very honest and willing to be independent," Feingold said. "I think people know that's the kind of senator I was and the kind of senator I would be if I had a chance to run again and actually be elected."

Man arrested in Middleton in insider trading case

An investment banker at a Manhattan firm and his father have been charged with using inside information to trade in securities of five health care companies.

The charges were contained in a criminal complaint unsealed Thursday in Manhattan federal court against Sean Stewart and his father, Robert. Sean Stewart is a managing director at Perella Weinberg Partners LP.

Federal prosecutors, consistent with a policy that often leads them not to identify financial institutions when employees are arrested, did not identify the firm. But the firm said in a statement it was cooperating with prosecutors.

The firm said the charges were unprecedented in its history and Stewart was suspended. Sean Stewart surrendered in Middleton, Wisconsin. His father was released on $500,000 bail in Manhattan. Their attorneys did not immediately return messages seeking comment.
