Home / On the Issues / 2016 / U.S. Senator Ron Johnson, (R) Wisconsin 41

A businessman from Oshkosh, Sen. Johnson was first elected to office in 2010, unseating three-term incumbent Senator Russ Feingold. Johnson calls himself a citizen legislator, who decided to enter politics because he was concerned about the growth of the federal government. Now, six years later, Johnson is running for reelection, and faces a rematch with Feingold in a race that could help determine majority control in the U.S. Senate. Johnson currently serves as Chairman of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. He’ll discuss his bid for reelection and the major issues facing the country during his visit to Eckstein Hall.
