‘Panicked’ Sen. Ron Johnson touts Trump to Wisconsin leaders
MADISON, Wis. — A “panicked” Sen. Ron Johnson is urging members of the state chamber of commerce in battleground Wisconsin to vote for President Donald Trump.
The Republican Johnson said Wednesday during a virtual meeting with Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce that he has been praying for a victory and “the other side is not in love with this country.”
The Republican Johnson says he understands that people in Wisconsin “are not real nuts about a New York street fighter.”
A Democratic Party spokesman called Johnson “Wisconsin’s biggest embarrassment.”
