Johnson Welcomes Baldwin to Senate Submitted: 11/08/2012
Madison - Republican Senator Ron Johnson congratulates Democrat Tammy Baldwin on her election to the senate.

Johnson said Wednesday he wants to sit down with Baldwin and discuss areas where they can work together as they prepare to represent Wisconsin in the U.S. Senate.

Johnson acknowledges that he and Baldwin are about as polar opposite, politically, as could be. Johnson is a Tea Party Republican elected in 2010.

Baldwin is a liberal Democrat and the first openly gay candidate ever elected to the Senate.
