Johnson Hides from Trump, but His Own Record is just as Extreme

GREEN BAY - With Donald Trump campaigning in Wisconsin today, the state’s leading Republicans are staying away. But Senator Ron Johnson, who is locked in a tough reelection fight, will have a harder time hiding from his own extreme, anti-worker record.

“Ron Johnson is just as extreme as Trump, and no less disrespectful to hardworking Wisconsin families,” said Christine Neumann-Ortiz, Executive Director of Voces de la Frontera Action. “Johnson voted against comprehensive immigration reform, and like Trump he doesn’t believe in the minimum wage. Johnson recklessly voted to default on the U.S.’s debt, which would have pushed the world into economic crisis and been a disaster for everyday people in Wisconsin. Like Trump, Ron Johnson does not care about the consequences of his policies for working people."
