Ron Johnson Defeats Russ Feingold

But by far the biggest political news to come out of Wisconsin is businessman Ron Johnson's defeat of three term Democratic Senator Russ Feingold.

If there was a candidate of the Tea Party then Johnson was surely it. Here's a self-made man who had eschewed politics and wanted to merely be left alone until circumstances left him with no choice but to stand and be counted. It will be interesting to see if Johnson can resist being captured by Washington.

Watch this speech Johnson delivered at the Madison Tea Party this past April 15th and it is easy to see why he resonated with voters in Wisconsin.
