This week, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) was named the 5th most conservative U.S. Senator in a new National Journal ranking based primarily on voting records. Sen. Johnson is really the 4th most conservative when one takes note of Sen. Jim DeMint's retirement.
Sen. Johnson's ranking among the Top Five conservative Senators proves that the first-term Senator is truly walking the walk. Elected in 2010 as a no-nonsense businessman with ambition to go to Washington D.C. to solve problems, Sen. Johnson has served the first two years of his six-year term with devotion to his principles of liberty, free markets, and limited government (no matter how much Hillary Clinton yells at him.)
For this recognition, we name Sen. Ron Johnson our Winner of the Day.
