Local News

Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – The Democratic Party of Wisconsin is using ADs to go after Republican Senator Ron Johnson for his role in creating doubts about the election and for last week’s riot at the U.S. Capitol.

According to the New York Times, the state party is spending more than 100- thousand dollars on the TV AD.

Senator Johnson has not confirmed he will seek a third term in 2022. Today, Democratic Congressman Ron Kind says the actions of the republican party has created a “distrustful” situation across the aisle.

Kind said, “Us members of congress have woken up to a new world on capitol hill as well, with the barriers and the fences, we too now have to go through metal detectors because of the concerns that many members have about their fellow colleagues.  Those who are carrying weapons, who refuse to disarm even when they come to the floor to the house of representatives and it’s created a very distrustful situation which isn’t health for anyone let alone the performance of this government.”
