MADISON — Senator Johnson continues to support Donald Trump, even as Republicans nationwide pull theirs. For months, Republicans – including – Senator Johnson – have accepted Trump’s hateful comments about women, African Americans, Muslims, Hispanics and disabled Americans. Now, with the revelation that Trump joked about sexually assaulting women, Republicans are finally doing what they should have done a year ago. Vulnerable Republicans like Senator Ayotte and Congressman Heck have pulled their support…

But not Senator Johnson, as of now he still plans to vote for Donald Trump for president. It’s not a surprise that Sen. Johnson continues to support Trump. As Senator he’s never stood for Wisconsin Women. He voted five times against legislation aimed to help women get equal pay for equal work, twice against the Violence Against Women Act and seven times against women’s health services.

Here is a list of senators and senate candidates who have pulled their support for Trump. Why hasn’t Johnson?

  • Sen. Kelly Ayotte (N.H.)
  • Rep. Joe Heck (NV)
  • Sen. Mark Kirk (IL)
  • Sen. John Thune (S.D.)
  • Sen. Lisa Murkowski (AK)

    It is my opinion, as I watch Johnson, that he is so committed to defending the TEA PARTY, of which he is a puppet, that he will support Trump because of Pence. Pence is a brutal, hard-liner of the Tea Party as well as a THEOCRAT. Pence could easily end up in the W.H. once Trump is elected. His influence in a Trump administration – yes, Donnie, it is an administration not a ‘reign’ as you so consistently refer to it – would be disastrous to our American Democracy. This is Johnson’s opportunity to blindly support the Koch Bros Tea Party. We can not risk this result. Johnson must be defeated – booted out of anything political. A Trump-Pence-Johnson collaboration in Washington would have terrible consequences!
