Hollywood movie star Robert Redford is asking for money to support Democratic Wisconsin Senate candidate Russ Feingold.

The fundraising plea Monday comes on the same day that an independent political action committee backing Johnson called Let America Work was to announce a new ad buy. Feingold was also set to deliver a speech at the biennial convention of the AFL-CIO of Wisconsin.

Feingold's campaign sent a fundraising email signed by Redford asking for donations as low as $3 to support him in the race against Republican Sen. Ron Johnson.

Redford writes that he's been observing the political season with "disbelief and deep concern for America" but Feingold needs support because he stands up for economic justice and working people.
