Mandela Barnes, Treasurer Sarah Godlewski, Milwaukee Bucks Executive Alex Lasry, Outagamie County Executive Tom Nelson and Steven Olikara, Founders of the Millennial Action Project.
“Ron Johnson spent years in the Senate looking after himself and failing the job he was elected to do at the expense of Wisconsini supporters, and it is time to face the consequences,” Chairman the Democratic Party of Wisconsin Ben Wikler tweeted Sunday morning.
Johnson said he expected the 2022 campaign to be bad.
“Ten million dollars will be spent to destroy and defeat me. The mainstream media and big tech will use their powerful and corrupt voices as the Democrats’ unofficial but reliable communications engine, ”he wrote.
