Senator Ron Johnson

Ron went to Washington because the federal government is bankrupting America. He thinks it is important for citizen legislators to ally with those who are seriously facing that reality. Ron’s manufacturing background has taught him to attack the root cause of a problem, not mere symptoms. He believes huge deficits, slow economic activity, high unemployment and woefully inadequate job creation are severe symptoms of the problem – but not the root cause. The ever expanding size, scope and cost of government is.

Ron serves on the committees on Appropriations, Budget, Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs and Aging. He resides in Oshkosh, Wisconsin with his wife Jane. They have three children.


Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald

In his 4th term in the Legislature, Wisconsin Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald is a candidate for the United States Senate seat being vacated by retiring Democrat Herb Kohl. A conservative republican, Fitzgerald says his experience shepherding controversial collective bargaining reforms through the legislature and passing Wisconsin’s first balanced budget in more than a decade has left him battletested and ready to take the fight for true reform to Washington.


Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch

Rebecca Kleefisch was elected Wisconsin’s Lieutenant Governor on November 2, 2010. A small business owner and former news reporter, Kleefisch serves as Wisconsin’s 44th Lieutenant Governor.

Rebecca serves as Wisconsin’s “Jobs Ambassador’ and spearheads the Governor’s Small Business Summit. Rebecca serves as an economic development liaison and advocate for small business owners. As part of her role, Rebecca travels Wisconsin to deepen the dialog between small business owners and the State of Wisconsin, holding “small business roundtables” designed to spur job creation.
