The Republican Accountability Project is launching a six-figure ad campaign criticizing U.S. House Speaker Mike Johnson for his role in efforts to overturn the 2020 election results.
The Louisiana Republican helped lead former President Donald Trump’s failed legal effort to fight the results. The spot will run on Fox News primetime in five states where Trump sought to turn the votes in his favor despite his loss.
The ad will run in Wisconsin in the Milwaukee media market. The group declined to disclose how much it was spending on the ad in the state.
A voiceover in the ad calls Johnson “the last person who should be leading Congress.”
“After Donald Trump lost the election, Johnson started pushing Trump’s ‘Big Lie,’ pressuring the Supreme Court to overturn the will of voters in four states,” the voiceover says. “And after the Jan. 6 insurrection, Johnson still refused to certify the election results in Arizona and Pennsylvania.”
