Ron Johnson, the Republican Oshkosh businessman who wants Russ Feingold's Senate seat, probably would fit right in with the well-heeled members of the upper chamber, where the average net worth is $15M.

Ron Johnson also suggested that career politician and Republican candidate for governor Scott Walker "has been on the public dole" for nearly his entire adult life. By contrast, conservative avatar Ronald Reagan was only on the public dole for about 16 years.
Johnson was told to get himself on the public dole by Dick Morris.
