Paul Ryan Endorses Ron Johnson at Burlington Grassroots Rally

Ron, Ryan discuss Republican momentum, Wisconsin ground game, importance of taking country in a new direction 

In their first major joint political appearance of the 2016 election, Paul Ryan endorsed Ron Johnson for U.S. Senate as the two spoke to supporters in Burlington about Republican momentum, the strength of the nationally recognized Republican ground game in Wisconsin, and the importance of electing conservative leaders to help take our country in a new direction.

Paul Ryan said: “I’m all in for Ron Johnson and am proud to endorse him today. Ron is a friend, a colleague, and a fighter for all Wisconsinites. If we’re going to get our country back on track – by turning around this economy and strengthening our national security – we need Ron’s principled leadership and Wisconsin common sense in the Senate. We’re going to need everyone’s support, so let’s get to work.”

Ron Johnson said: “I am honored to have the support of Paul Ryan – a man of courage and integrity, and a true conservative leader whose ideas can help us turn our country around. The grassroots supporters joining us today are our most powerful weapon to elect conservative leadership to address the federal debt, get Washington out of the way of economic opportunity for all, and keep Wisconsin communities safe.”
