In response to reports today that Senator Ron Johnson is urging fellow Republicans to delay Covid relief as long as possible, including personally stalling progress through a stunt of Parliamentary procedure, Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Ben Wikler issued the following statement:

“Wisconsinites can’t afford to wait for help while Ron Johnson continues pandering to the most extreme elements of the Republican party. Every day Johnson and his fellow extremists waste is a day that Wisconsin families are waiting for their $1400 survival checks, a day that our state is losing out on vaccine distribution resources, and a day that schools and small businesses are without aid to bounce back from the pandemic. If Ron Johnson is more interested in playing cable news commentator than helping Wisconsin families, he should resign now and get a head start on life after the Senate. He’ll need a new job after November 8, 2022 either way.”
