In the wake of his victory over Democrat Russ Feingold in the 2016 election, U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson has been pretty busy on Capitol Hill. He's been an outspoken figure in the fight over health care and tax policy, and has also emerged as a consistent supporter of President Donald Trump.

Johnson spoke with WisPolitics editor Jeff Mayers at the Cap Times Idea Fest over the weekend, giving his take on a wide scope of policy items, from immigration to public benefits. 

You can listen to their conversation in this episode of Live from Cap Times Idea Fest, a podcast that brings you recordings of several panels and interviews featured at the inaugural event.
