Wisconsin incumbent Sen. Russ Feingold is bucking the trend and running a straight-up pro-health care reform spot. The ad itself is not all that remarkable, but it stands out in a year when Democrats who voted for reform are trying hard to talk about other issues, while Democrats who voted against it are touting their opposition.

The latest CNN/Time poll showed Feingold down 6 points among likely voters to challenger Ron Johnson. Other polls show him trailing by more. Will this turn things around?
