OSHKOSH – U.S. Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) and the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) jointly released a new ad on Wednesday on the increase in violence and crime ensuing from the radical Democrats’ agenda. The ad is part of a seven-figure statewide television and digital ad buy and is the first time in the campaign cycle a candidate and the NRSC have partnered.
The ad highlights the crime wave resulting from destructive riots in Kenosha, the Waukesha Christmas parade attack, the rising homicide rate in Milwaukee, the Defund the Police movement, and the releasing of criminals on low to no bail.
“Democrats have created the worst crime wave in decades,” the ad says. “Senator Ron Johnson is standing with our brave law enforcement officers to keep Wisconsin families safe. And he wants to keep violent criminals behind bars, where they belong.”
“Democrats have supported a soft-on-crime, defund the police agenda for far too long. Just take a look at the rising crime rates across our country. In Wisconsin, there has been a 70% increase in homicides since 2019. The safety of Wisconsinites needs to come before the Democrats’ radical political agenda and their D.C. special interest groups. The NRSC fully backs Ron Johnson’s re-election campaign because he will fight to keep Wisconsin neighborhoods safe and defend our hardworking law enforcement officers. Ron has a strong record of always putting Wisconsin first and we will do everything possible to make sure he beats the radical liberal candidate Democrats are set to nominate.” – NRSC Chairman Rick Scott
