Senator Ron Johnson hasn’t decided whether he will run for re-election next year, but he already has the strongest support in Republican politics: that of former President Donald Trump.
Johnson, who was first elected in the 2010 Republican Wave and won a highly competitive re-election in 2016, has not said whether he will seek a third term and has stressed several times over the past few months that he will take his time to review To make a decision. But Trump gave him his support in a statement released Thursday by his lead PAC, Save America PAC.
“Although he has not yet announced that it is running, and I hope he does, I give my full and complete endorsement to Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin,” Trump said in the statement. “He’s brave, he’s brave, he loves our country, our military and our vets. He’ll protect our second amendment and everything else we stand for. It’s the kind of courage we need in the US Senate. “
