MADISON – Even conservatives are admitting it’s time for the Senate to do its job and vote on the President’s SCOTUS nominee. An article in Red State today called on Republicans to stop playing political games. Voters are sick of the pass the buck mentality from Senate Republicans, and National Republicans are nervous about Donald Trump nominating Supreme Court Justices. But not Ron Johnson. He is all in on Trump. He plans to endorse Trump and campaign with him.

Ron Johnson’s couldn’t care less about the chorus of voices pushing him to act though. His only concern is Mitch McConnell and his new pal Donald Trump. He wants Wisconsinites to just “move on” because “it’s not going to happen,” even though poll after poll shows voters want the Senate to act. Voters shouldn’t expect to hear from Johnson on the Supreme Court this summer when he tours the state with Trump for the “Ronal and Donald Show.”
