DSCC Releases New Ad On Johnson: “Himself”

Spot highlights how Johnson is looking out for himself and his rich political donors at Wisconsinites expense  

In response to Ron Johnson’s campaign announcement — breaking his term limit pledge —  today the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is releasing a new digital ad, Himself.”

The spot highlights how Johnson is a self-serving politician who pushed for laws that enriched him and helped his wealthy political donors, hurting Wisconsinites in the process. The ad will reach targeted Wisconsin voters starting today, including Wisconsinites searching online for information about Johnson and his campaign launch, as part of an initial five figure advertising campaign.

HIMSELF

From Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Spokeswoman Amanda Sherman Baity: “Johnson is doing nothing in the Senate except looking out for himself, helping his rich political donors and hurting Wisconsinites in the process. When he’s not manipulating the tax code that enriched himself and his political allies, he’s voting to spike the cost of health care for working families, rewarding companies that outsource jobs to China and opposing the bipartisan infrastructure plan that will rebuild the state. At every opportunity, Johnson is looking for one person: himself — and that’s exactly why Wisconsin voters will fire him in 2022.”

Here’s what to know about self-serving Senator Ron Johnson:

  • Johnson Is Corrupt: He’s Supported Tax Laws That Enriched Him And His Political Donors. Johnson personally changed the 2017 tax law that gave two of his largest political donors a tax handout and to benefit his own company. The Associated Presswrote that “Johnson…pushed for a tax break in 2017 resulting in hundreds of millions of dollars in deductions to megadonors who funded his campaigns” and The Guardianwrote that “he ‘personally benefited from a change in tax law that he sought.’” Johnson’s own net worth has roughly doubled since taking office.
