WASHINGTON (WBAY) - Wisconsin’s senior U.S. Senator Ron Johnson has been making national headlines, but not always in a positive light. His support for President Donald Trump was unquestioned, but in recent months the Republican senator has come under fire for promoting unproven medical claims in Senate hearings, alternated between saying the election of President Joe Biden was legitimate and opposing the formality of certifying the results, and more recently his comments on the U.S. Capitol siege and the people behind it.

Chris Roth talked with Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Washington Bureau Chief Craig Gilbert about Ron Johnson’s political future: Will he run for a third term in 2022?

“The more fire he feels from the other side, the more defiant he becomes,” Gilbert says.
