MADISON — It’s not just Donald Trump that women have to worry about this election. For nearly six years Senator Johnson has aligned himself with far right groups that share his extreme anti-women agenda, and now he’s counting on them to keep him in Washington. Instead of fighting for women, Johnson has sided time and time again with anti-women special interest groups. The result is a record of failure when it comes to protecting Wisconsin women: he supported legislation that could have outlawed common forms of birth control; he voted to eliminate funding that helped provide breast and cervical cancer screenings; and he brought the government to the brink of a shutdown over funding for Planned Parenthood.

Senator Johnson has more in common with extreme right wing groups than he does with Wisconsin women, and the proof is in his record. Whether it’s the budget deficit or combating Zika, Senator Johnson’s solution to almost every problem is to cut funding for women’s health. Now he’s counting on the same ultra-right wing, anti-women groups, to keep his desperate attempt to stay in Washington afloat,” said Harry Hartfield, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Wisconsin.
