Citizens of Wisconsin will be choosing their senator for Congress in November. The choice is a stark contrast.
Ron Johnson is a man with Wisconsin values. He started a business in our state, provided many jobs and is aware of the burdens of regulations from the federal government. He is a fervent supporter of our veterans and is using his chairmanship of the Senate Committee On Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs to get to the bottom of the real problems at the VA, like the deaths in Tomah. He has also been a consistent voice for fiscal sanity and reining in our debt, waste, fraud and abuse in the federal government.
On the other hand, Sen. Russ Feingold served for 18 years in Washington, is steeped in D.C. values, a fan of big government and its regulations such as the “Clean Power Plan,” which will destroy Wisconsin’s manufacturing base and jobs. He ignored a plea regarding the Tomah VA to help our veterans while still a senator. Instead of staying in Wisconsin, he chose to go to California and become involved in academia and West Coast values. This man shouldn’t be representing Wisconsin.
Approximately 70 percent of the funding for Feingold’s campaign is coming from out-of-state contributions. Do not let someone influenced by out-of-state money with Washington and West Coast values represent the citizens of our state. We need a voice for “us” in Washington.
Support Ron Johnson — he has Wisconsin values. Not to mention, he is an avid fisherman — another outstanding Wisconsin value.
