scottwalkerMADISON - Yesterday, Governor Scott Walker finally joined the Party of Trump, saying he would support Donald Trump when he becomes the Republican’s presidential nominee. Although Scott Walker’s own presidential campaign fizzled quickly, he has worked tirelessly to remain relevant in the GOP contest, first endorsing Ted Cruz, and now throwing his support behind an eventual Trump nomination.

donald-trump“It’s not surprising that Scott Walker would line up behind Donald Trump, when you consider that so many of his of his policies do as well," Democratic Party of Wisconsin Executive Director Kory Kozloski said on Thursday. “After endorsing Ted Cruz and becoming the face of the #NeverTrump movement, Walker seems to be quickly abandoning his principles and kowtowing to his party’s frontrunner, Donald Trump.

Some have speculated that Walker’s recent actions are aimed at keeping his name in consideration for the Vice Presidency spot on the ticket. His actions today seem to indicate he will say anything, and support anyone to keep those ambitions alive. Walker’s potential support of Trump is even more galling when you consider the extreme Policies Trump has pushed for during his campaign - even going so far as to suggest that women who have abortions should be punished.

“Thankfully, Democrats have two excellent candidates in Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, both of whom have spent their campaigns talking about the issues that matter to voters,” concluded Kozloski. "Secretary Clinton and Senator Sanders are working to bring our country together, grow our economy, and build on the successes of President Obama."

ron-johnsonWAUKESHA, WI - Friday afternoon at Waukesha County Technical College, Sen. Ron Johnson will join Sen. Tammy Baldwin for a field hearing on the opioid crisis that is ravaging Wisconsin communities.

Johnson has a well-documented record of failure when it comes to offering real solutions to Wisconsin’s families on this tragedy. He’s fully embraced the failed “just say no” rhetoric of the past that did nothing to prevent or treat drug addiction in our communities.

With Sen. Johnson’s failed record in mind, here are 3 questions for which Wisconsinites deserve answers:

1. Why did you vote against the $600 million in emergency funding that would have provided prevention services, education, and other resources to local law enforcement and others to combat this crisis right here in Wisconsin?

2. Why do you support another expensive “just say no” campaign, when you say we can’t afford funding for local law enforcement and health professionals to combat and prevent this crisis?

3. Why do you support the idea of putting billions of dollars toward a wall on our southern border when you say we can’t afford funding for local law enforcement and health professionals to combat and prevent this crisis here at home?

ron-johnson-speaksMADISON - What if Sen. Ron Johnson launched a new website, call it "RonJohnson.org"? Here is some content we'd like to encounter:

Sen. Ron Johnson here,

Just got back from Vegas for my own purposes --  trying to shake more money for the three super PACs solely dedicated to my own Senate bid out of the pockets of my buddy Sheldon Adelson!

But now that I’m back in Washington, I wanted to take a minute to show you all my new website.

Let’s just look at the reality of the situation: I am far too busy to get out and listen to the working families of Wisconsin. And why would I, when billionaires, big corporations and the Tea Party give me my marching orders?!

So since I’m far too busy to actually get out and listen to the people of Wisconsin, I figured I’d make this website to let you know what I’ve been working on in Washington.

On my site, you’ll be able to check out my top priorities such as:

-      Voting for tax loopholes while Wisconsinites lose jobs
-      Privatizing Social Security
- Opposing efforts to lift the burden of student loan debt

You can also read about:

-       My $10 million golden parachute
-       My record against Wisconsin women
-       My reckless foreign policy
-       My record protecting big polluters

So you probably won’t see me around any time soon (I’ll either be here in Washington or hobnobbing with my pals Sheldon Adelson and the Koch brothers), but you can drop by here any time to keep up with my top priorities.

Hope you enjoy!

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-super PACs)

P.S. To keep up with my top priorities, you can follow me on Twitter at @senatorronjon
