Johnson, who ousted Democratic incumbent Russ Feingold to win the state's other Senate seat two years ago, said he spoke with Baldwin on the phone Wednesday and congratulated her on the win. He told the AP he looked forward to meeting with her in person soon to discuss the issues facing the country.Well, that's very magnanimous of Sen. Johnson, to be sensitive to how difficult it is for women to wrap their head around big numbers and stuff.
"Hopefully I can sit down and lay out for her my best understanding of the federal budget because they're simply the facts," he said. "Hopefully she'll agree with what the facts are and work toward common sense solutions."
And the math tells us Sen. Baldwin has only been in Congress for 13 years, after all, so surely she could use the help of the senior Senator.
