WASHINGTON – On Tuesday, U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) issued the following statement on Judge William Pocan’s nomination for appointment to the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin.

“Since Judge Pocan’s nomination, I have been hearing concerns from the Green Bay legal community that they needed a judge who is locally based and actively involved in their community. That is not the case with Judge Pocan. In addition, the tragedy in Waukesha never should have happened. That it did, is the direct result of soft on crime low bail policies and court orders. I cannot support someone for a lifetime appointment that has granted low bail for someone charged with violent felonies. That is not in the best interest of Wisconsinites nor Americans. I look forward to working with President Biden on selecting a suitable nominee.”
