Ron Johnson Launches “Badger Brigade” of Grassroots Supporters
Campaign gathers more than 100,000 grassroots endorsements from Wisconsin supporters standing with Ron Johnson, plans ongoing recruitment effort
Ron Johnson today announced the launch of his “Badger Brigade,” a new recruiting effort that already has more than 100,000 grassroots endorsements from Wisconsin supporters who have committed to Ron’s campaign and the work he’s doing to address the economic and national security concerns of Wisconsinites in every corner of the state.
“Our grassroots supporters are our most powerful weapon, and they know just how high the stakes are in this election,” Ron Johnson said. “Together with the nationally recognized ground game Wisconsin Republicans have built, the Badger Brigade is proof that our supporters are up to the challenge as we build a true grassroots campaign to stand up to Washington dysfunction and address the concerns of Wisconsinites looking for a stronger economy and safer communities.”
- Ron Johnson’s “Badger Brigade” is a group of more than 100,000 grassroots endorsements from Wisconsin supporters who have agreed to stand with Ron’s campaign. Among those supporters are members of Ron’s grassroots leadership in all of Wisconsin’s 72 counties, who recruit and direct volunteers across the state and help spread Ron’s message in their communities and online.
- This builds upon Wisconsin Republicans’ nationally recognized ground game, which has proven results rare for a battleground state: three victories for governor, flipping swing congressional districts solidly red, and building deep Republican majorities in the state legislature.
- Wisconsin Republicans have made more than 750,000 volunteer voter contacts since early 2015. As Chuck Todd’s Meet the Press blog noted, “On the GOP side, there is perhaps no more successful state Republican party than there is in Wisconsin.”
- The latest proof: Ron recently filed paperwork to appear on the ballot, and with the help of his grassroots operation, gained the maximum number of signatures, and received support from all 72 counties in Wisconsin.
