It’s difficult to get motivated to support Johnson for his reelection next year when Johnson is voting the same way Feingold would have.
U.S. Sens. Tammy Baldwin and Ron Johnson both voted to confirm Loretta Lynch as attorney general.
Lynch’s nomination, which had been held up in a fight over a human trafficking bill and the president’s executive actions on immigration, cleared the Senate yesterday at 56-43.
Johnson, R-Oshkosh, cited Lynch’s law enforcement credentials and deference to the president in selecting his cabinet for his support. He was one of 10 Senate Republicans to back the nomination.
