MADISON — Following Senator Johnson’s vote on the Senate’s disastrous Zika bill, here’s what Wisconsinites need to know about Senator Johnson’s record on Zika:

“If Senator Johnson was serious about fighting Zika he wouldn’t support a bill that restricts women’s health services and falls hundreds of millions of dollars short of what experts say is needed. After 24 confirmed Zika cases in Wisconsin, Johnson continues put his extreme ideology above the safety of Wisconsinites. Is there any problem Senator Johnson doesn’t think can be solved by restricting women’s health services? Even for Senator Johnson, politicizing a national health emergency is a new low in his desperate attempt to stay in Washington,” said Harry Hartfield, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Wisconsin.
