Ron Johnson traveled with Senator Scott Brown, winner of “the people’s seat,” around Milwaukee on Sunday and Monday, visiting the Wisconsin State Fair, holding a Republican rally and sitting down to listen to the concerns of veterans, young professionals and other Wisconsinites.
Their message: this is Wisconsin’s Senate seat, not Senator Feingold’s. Just as Ron defied the odds by defeating Feingold, a professional politician and 18-year liberal icon to Democrats in Washington, D.C., Scott Brown won what was dubbed “the people’s seat” in 2010, beating liberal Boston Democrats out of a seat held by Senator Ted Kennedy for decades.
