Today, Lt. Governor Mandela Barnes, Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate released “Insurrection,” a new digital ad calling out Ron Johnson for his involvement with the January 6th insurrection and trying to pass a slate of fake electors to Vice President Mike Pence. “Insurrection” is part of a multi-million dollar ad campaign throughout the state.
After the 2020 election, Ron Johnson coordinated with Donald Trump’s lawyer to get a slate of fake electors to Vice President Mike Pence. He even hired one of those fake electors on his campaign. Ron Johnson continues to downplay the severity of the insurrection, claiming that the riot “didn’t seem like an armed insurrection,” despite 140 police officers being injured.
Mandela Barnes acknowledges that democracy is on the ballot this year. In the Senate, he will fight to protect democracy and respect the voices of voters.
