Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin lied about his pledge and is running for reelection

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) announced Sunday that he will run for reelection, after months of speculation around his possible retirement.

snip-

Johnson has become an easy punching bag for Democrats in Wisconsin, who are trying not only to flip his seat but also keep control of the state’s governorship. Democrats have a large field of candidates running to be their nominee, and the pack is currently led by Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes and state Treasurer Sarah Godlewski.

“Whether he was manipulating the GOP tax scam bill to enrich himself and his biggest political donors, trying to drive up health care costs and rip away protections for pre-existing conditions, or failing to crack down on China’s illicit economic practices and companies that outsource our jobs, Johnson has proven over and over again he’s only ever focused on serving himself,” Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Ben Wikler said in a statement.

Democrats across the nation face a tough election year in 2022. But they hope Johnson has the same effect on Wisconsin’s more suburban Republicans as Trump did in 2020, when Joe Biden narrowly won the state.

2. Johnson decided to run again because "the nation is in peril".

And he wants to be part of the team that hits the flush handle.
