MADISON, Wis. — One Wisconsin Now Executive Director Scot Ross released the following statements following the unprecedented Republican Senate power grab which gave extremist Neil Gorsuch a lifetime seat on the U.S. Supreme Court. One Wisconsin is a leading member of the national “Why Courts Matter” coalition.

“It appears the only place theft is not a crime is in Ron Johnson’s Republican-controlled U.S. Senate.

“For six years, Ron Johnson helped lead the greatest obstruction against a president filling judicial vacancies in American history. Today, he put the wants of tantrum-throwing Donald Trump before the needs of the people of Wisconsin. Ron Johnson helped rewrite generations of Senate precedent to give a lifetime Supreme Court appointment to a radical extremist who thinks women and LGBT persons are second-class citizens.

“Today, Tammy Baldwin stood up for the people of Wisconsin and Ron Johnson stood up for Donald Trump.”
