Johnson is one of the few congressmen, including the full House and Senate, to receive the federation’s 100% voting rating this year.
Wimer said, “We reach out to members of congress, whether they’re in Washington or whether they’re in state capitols like Madison. We let them know how.. real small business owners feel about the big issues.”
Johnson has now won the Gaurdian award for each of his eligible years in offce.
