(WISCONSIN) — Following reports that Ron Johnson will not keep his word to wait to confirm the next Supreme Court nominee until after the next president and Senate is seated, Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Ben Wikler released the following statement:

“Ron Johnson has now signaled that he plans to betray his own stated principle: that the most fair and democratic way to proceed is for the next president and Senate to choose the Supreme Court nominee. If Ron Johnson shatters the trust of his constituents by voting for a nominee before the next Senate is seated, he will cement his legacy as a disgrace to Wisconsin and demonstrate to voters that he is unworthy of public office.”
