Ron Johnson (Wi-R) was one of the many Tea party-backed GOPers who won during the wave against Obamacare, which is now a government program more popular than not. Since his first election, he's performed worse in every following election, which is unusual for an incumbent that keeps winning. His greatest success for conservatives and any anti-progressive moderates is that he defeated Russ Feingold who was the closest thing to a Bernie Sanders in the US Senate at the time. Feingold was arguably the last LaFollette Wisconsin Progressive.

His actions:
