Former President Trump is endorsind U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson for reelection even though the Oshkosh Republican hasn’t said whether he will seek a third term in 2022.
In the statement released by his leadership PAC Thursday, Trump acknowledged that Johnson hasn’t yet announced whether he will run.
“He has no idea how popular he is. Run, Ron, Run!” Trump implored.
Ahead of his 2016 reelection, Johnson pledged he would serve just two terms in the Senate. Since then, he has said he’s reconsidering because of the impact of full Dem control of the federal government.
In response to Trump’s endorsement, Johnson said in a statement, “I appreciate President Trump’s words of support and encouragement.”
