Sen. Joseph H. Ball (MN-R) was considered very conservative. He strangely votes FDR as you see below in 1944. This is because Dewey wouldn't give a clear statement on his foreign policy. WWII was still on-going and so Ball saw that as the most important issue. 

Here are his actions:

Ball, Joseph H. 1943 resolution to create a permanent U.N.
Ball, Joseph H. 1944 GOP Sen who voted for FDR over Dewey over foreign policy
Ball, Joseph H. 1945 presses for strong U.S. commitment to U.N.
Ball, Joseph H. 1947 Helped draft Taft-Hartley anti-labor bill
Ball, Joseph H. 1948 Opposes Marshall Plan
