MADISON – One day after Donald Trump’s dominating performance on Super Tuesday, and Ron Johnson is already falling in line behind his party’s front runner (he’s been doing so for a while…).  The GOP has long prepared for the day when Donald Trump becomes their party’s nominee.  Now that Trump is marching toward the Republican nomination, let’s review just how well Sen. Johnson has towed the line:

SHOT: Washington Post: Private memo lays out how the GOP would deal with Trump as its nominee [3/2/16]

CHASER: Sen. Ron Johnson on Trump’s march toward the GOP nomination: “I’ll accentuate the positive of anybody. I’ll look for areas of agreement… I like the fact that he knows how to negotiate…I mean that’s one of his appeals.”

As Bloomberg News Reports:

At least some in the party began showing a willingness to get behind Trump after his big night. Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, who faces an uphill run for reelection in a state won twice by Barack Obama, said Wednesday he sees the Trump’s appeal to voters.

Johnson, like Trump, left a lucrative life in business for politics in a bid to shake up Washington.

“I’ll accentuate the positive of anybody,” he said. “I’ll look for areas of agreement.”

Lime: What he’s trying to say is…

I will support the Republican nominee.” – Sen. Ron Johnson
