Ward Baker, the Executive Director of the NRSC highlighted the “one-of-a-kind war machine” that has already made more than 750,000 volunteer voter contacts in Wisconsin and is now ready to defeat Senator Feingold. The Associated Press and other local media covered his remarks.
The head of the group working to get Republicans elected to the U.S. Senate says Sen. Ron Johnson has “perfected a one-of-a-kind war machine” to defeat Democrat Russ Feingold.
National Republican Senatorial Committee executive director Ward Baker said in a conference call with reporters Tuesday that the NRSC is committed to spending money on television advertising to win the rematch against Feingold.
Baker also appeared to try and distance Johnson from presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, repeatedly downplaying concerns about a GOP enthusiasm gap at the top of the ticket.
Baker says, “We’re not running for president, we’re running for Senate.”
Baker says Johnson’s campaign has contacted 750,000 voters and benefited from help from fellow Wisconsin Republicans Gov. Scott Walker and House Speaker Paul Ryan.
