After insisting for weeks that he would not attend the Republican National Convention, Wisconsin U.S. Senator Ron Johnson spoke in Cleveland on Tuesday night. Johnson mentioned his party’s presidential nominee just once in his speech at the RNC, as he told delegates that the November election is a fight about freedom and security.
“Donald Trump and Mike Pence understand that these must be America’s top priorities,” Johnson said in Cleveland Tuesday night. “They’ll be strong leaders, working with Republicans in the House and the Senate to acheive a goal that can unite us all, and safe and a prosperous and secure America.”
Johnson also went after his Democratic opponent Russ Feingold, noting that Feingold voted against the USA Patriot Act during his time in the Senate. “He’s asking Wisconsinites to give him a fourth term, just as Hillary Clinton is asking America to give her Obama’s third term,” Johnson said. “The world is simply too dangerous to elect either of them.”
