MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A businessman who sought support from the tea party toppled one of the Senate's most prominent liberals Tuesday to become the state's first Republican senator in 18 years.

In his bid to bring down three-term Democrat Russ Feingold, Ron Johnson touted his accounting and business experience, saying he knew how to create jobs and balance budgets.

Johnson, a political newcomer who ran a plastics company for 31 years, rose to prominence after giving two well-received tea party speeches. He said his top priority would be to repeal the health care overhaul.
