Sarah Godlewski Releases Statement After Ron Johnson Makes it Official and Announces His Run for Re-Election

MADISON – This morning, in a Wall Street Journal op-ed, Ron Johnson made it official. The rabid right-winger is breaking his word to the people of Wisconsin and running for a third term.

“Nothing shows just how much Ron Johnson has left Wisconsin and our working families behind than announcing his re-election in a New York-based, Wall Street newspaper. Ron Johnson has failed Wisconsinites–looking out for corporate special interests and promoting conspiracy theories, not helping us,” said State Treasurer Sarah Godlewski. “Beating Ron Johnson is going to take a commonsense candidate who is focused on the kitchen table issues that matter to Wisconsin families and knows how to win–and I’ve got what it takes to get the job done.”

Sarah Godlewski is building a campaign with the support and resources necessary to beat Ron Johnson. She has received endorsements from over 50 current and former Wisconsin elected officials and received backing from EMILY’s List, No Dem Left Behind, United Rural Democrats, VoteMama, and Democrats Serve. A recent poll showed Godlewski is well-positioned to beat Johnson in November and the only candidate leading the longtime politician, pulling ahead by 2 points (48-46). 

Sarah Godlewski is a fifth-generation Wisconsinite, born and raised in Eau Claire, WI, and is the daughter of two public school teachers. She is laser-focused on the kitchen table issues Wisconsin workers, families, and communities are most worried about. In the Senate, Sarah will fight to make people’s lives better – take on powerful special interests like Big Pharma and Big Oil; pass a wealth tax to ensure the wealthy and corporations pay their fair share; pass a $15 minimum wage; invest in renewable energy; and lower costs for families on healthcare, child care, and education.
