While Wisconsin does not have a US Senate race on the ballot next month, the state’s two members of that chamber have been actively working to make sure their party is in control after November 4. US Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) has been campaigning in key Senate races across the country, as has her Republican counterpart, US Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI).
Johnson, who faces reelection in 2016, says it’s essential that the GOP take back control of the chamber from Democrats so the country can get back on the right track. Johnson says “we really have a one man party of no in Democrat Senator Harry Reid…he’s really destroyed the United State Senate as being a deliberative body. He does not respect the rights of the minority party.”

Reid is the current Senate majority leader, and Johnson says Republicans want to change the way the chamber does business if they are given control next year. He claims the GOP would work with the other side of the aisle and “return to regular order. We’ll have a full amendment and debate process in the Senate. I think that would be very healing.”
