Can Democrats do to Paul Ryan-WI in 2018 what Republicans did to Tom Foley-WA in 1994?

In 1994- Then Democratic Speaker of the US House Tom Foley narrowly lost re-election to George Nethercutt because of the Republican wave and also because Foley opposed the Term Limits initiative in 1992 which was approved by majority of the voters in WA. Nethercutt promised to serve 3 terms but ran for re-election in 2000 and 2002, In 2004 he ran for the US Senate against Patty Murphy and lost by a double digit margin.
Paul Ryan-WI represents a +5R District and it was previously held Les Aspin/Peter Barca before the 1994 midterm elections.

Trump Impeachment Trial-Which Republican US Senator could vote yes to remove Trump from office?

Impeachment is likely to take place after the 2018 elections. Every highly vulnerable Democratic US Senator up for re-election in 2018 (Donnelly-IN,McCaskill-MO,Heitkamp-ND,and Brown-OH) will win re-election and highly vulnerable Republican US Senator up for re-election in 2018 (Flake-AZ,Heller-NV,and Cruz-TX) will lose re-election.
Every Democratic US Senator will vote yes to remove Trump from office- 51 Yes.
The number of Republican US Senators that we need to vote yes is 16.

I just learned that Holy Joseph Isadore Lieberman works at a law firm that represents Donald Trump.

He worked at Kasowitz,Benson,Torres,and Friedman, a law firm in NYC that specializes in White Collar Criminal Defense right after he left the US Senate.Donald Trump is one of their clients.

Russ Feingold (D-WI)

If Russ Feingold wanted to get back into the US Senate, how come he did not run in 2012 when it was an open seat (Kohl-D was retiring), Obama was on the ballot and was favored to carry WI by high single digit margin. Feingold would have benefited from Obama's coattails. Feingold had a better shot of defeating Tommy Thompson in 2012 then defeating Ron Johnson in a rematch.
Russ Feingold then could have run for President in 2016 or be the Democratic Vice Presidential nominee. Tammy Baldwin would have been the Democratic US Senate nominee in 2016 against Ron Johnson. Tammy Baldwin-D could have defeated Johnson in 2016.
