Bruce Murphy on Ron Johnson

Milwaukee Magazine's observer in residence assesses the Johnson campaign:
Ron Johnson is an entirely different matter. The 55-year-old owner of an Oshkosh-based plastics manufacturing company is the perfect candidate for today – he has absolutely no experience! He can portray himself as the ultimate outsider, has no record Feingold can attack and has millions of his own money he could choose to spend in the race. He has also given a couple well-received speeches to Tea Party gatherings. If he can avoid major missteps (a big if for a novice politician), Johnson could be a formidable candidate. Voters, after all, want to protest against things as they are. And Johnson represents things as they aren’t.
