Ron Johnson And Ron Johnson And Ron Johnson

It’s a bit unusual for us to devote an entire episode to a single Wisconsin politician, but lately, Republican U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson has been in the news — a lot. He’s been amplifying refuted claims about election fraud; he’s been downplaying the severity of the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection and questioning who was involved; and he’s been a ringleader in trying to slow President Joe Biden’s COVID-19 relief bill. Is he just doing it to do it? Or does it tell us something about his future political plans?
