Ron Johnson’s October Manufacturing Month Tour Shows Strong Record on Wisconsin Jobs

Visits 10 manufacturing facilities across state, highlights how to create good jobs for Wisconsin families

Ron Johnson for Senate released the following statement on Ron’s tour to 10 manufacturing facilities across the state, as well as his record on creating good Wisconsin jobs, as Manufacturing Month draws to a close:

“The contrast between Ron Johnson and Senator Feingold on creating good jobs for Wisconsin families could not be more clear,” campaign spokesman Brian Reisinger said. “Ron spent October traveling our state, talking with workers and students about how to create more good Wisconsin jobs – the kind of jobs he created as a manufacturer himself. Senator Feingold spent his time lecturing in California about the United States Senate as a Legal Institution and throwing around big government proposals and empty promises, which is fitting since he spent his 18 years in Washington proving he has no idea how to grow the economy – just government.”


* Ron’s travels across Wisconsin in October included events at 10 Wisconsin manufacturing facilities: Madison-Kipp Corp. in Madison, TLX Technologies in Pewaukee, Miro Tool and Manufacturing in Waukesha, Acieta Robotics in Pewaukee, Saris Cycling in Fitchburg, Automation Components Inc. in Middleton, John Deere Horicon in Horicon, Sentry Equipment Corp. in Oconomowoc, A&E Inc. in Racine, and Cree in Racine. Ron, who started his own manufacturing business in Oshkosh in 1979, talked about how limited government can reduce costs and lead to more good Wisconsin manufacturing jobs.

* Ron has authored legislation – and supported dozens of bills by other senators – to put a stop to a wide range of burdensome federal regulations, led the fight against Obamacare with proposals to repair the damage the law has done to our economy and employers, and used his chairmanship of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs to encourage bipartisan work on regulatory reform – including through the organization of the Subcommittee on Regulatory Affairs and Federal Management.

* Senator Feingold, meanwhile, has been lecturing in California on Mondays at Stanford University on “The United States Senate as a Legal Institution.”

* During his 18 years in the Senate, Senator Feingold received abysmal ratings from the National Association of Manufacturers, the National Federation of Independent Business and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. In fact, the Chamber rated Feingold the second worst senator for business – the only one worse was self-described socialist Bernie Sanders.
