Statement on Sen. Ron Johnson’s Endorsement Tour
"P.S. The Badger Pledge is still on the table."
“Instead of listening to the people of Wisconsin, Senator Johnson is out auditioning to get more national corporate money to bail out his campaign. Add this to the senator’s two super PACs and it’s absolutely clear that Senator Johnson is outsourcing his own Senate campaign to outside groups with their millions in corporate funds.
“It’s no wonder Senator Johnson supports privatizing Social Security, opposes relief for debt-burdened college graduates, blocks equal pay, and votes to fast track the disastrous TPP deal. That’s the agenda of his corporate and Wall Street funders.
“Russ Feingold’s campaign is backed by over 28,000 hardworking Wisconsinites, not corporate super PACs. And Russ Feingold’s agenda is about helping working class families get ahead, not letting billionaires and corporations push families further behind.
“P.S. The Badger Pledge is still on the table.”
