Statement on Sen. Ron Johnson’s Endorsement Tour

"P.S. The Badger Pledge is still on the table."

By - Mar 23rd, 2016 11:11 am

In response to Ron Johnson‘s endorsement tour today, Russ for Wisconsin Communications Director Michael Tyler released the following statement:

“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.”

    Politifact, 10/28/2015:

    “In four Senate campaigns, Feingold abided by the pledge he inscribed on his garage door: He would raise the majority of his campaign cash from Wisconsin residents.
    Feingold said he was changing with the times, and is no longer bound by his previous pledge.
    That’s a complete reversal. And a Full Flop.”

    BTW, awesome we’re on a first-name basis, “Russ”… You can call me “Wash.”

  2. Vincent Hanna says:

    Ron will be back in the private sector soon, where he belongs. Or maybe he can just retire. Either way, he will not be a U.S. Senator. Good.

  3. Mike says:

    As both parties are corrupt, all we can do is vote for the best candidate. As I am an advocate for states rights, I will have to vote for Feingold (typically vote republican). Shame on Ron Johnson for voting for the DARK Act. Money (In this case Monsanto’s money) dictates how these puppets vote.
