In an effort to remain out of the fray for the GOP nomination for president, Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson, who is himself is up for re-election this November, has refrained from endorsing any candidate and has promised to support the eventual Republican nominee…well until today that is:

Republican U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson has declined to rule out a future break with his party’s presidential frontrunner, Donald Trump — a shift from Johnson’s past statements that he would back whoever the GOP nominates.

Following Trump’s reluctance to disavow a former Ku Klux Klan leader in a Sunday TV interview, Johnson told radio host Charlie Sykes that he’s happy to disavow any form of white supremacy.

Johnson, R-Oshkosh, said he’s “praying” for leaders who won’t be divisive and — without naming Trump — said he’s demoralized by the current state of the presidential race.

“It’s depressing to see how this is devolving,” Johnson said.

Asked by Sykes in Monday’s interview if he’ll do the same, Johnson said: “let’s see how the process plays out.”

“I don’t like demagoguery on any side of the political spectrum, and we have it across the political spectrum,” Johnson said.

Johnson previously has maintained he will support whoever the GOP nominates for president.

This is one time that Senator Johnson is making the right call…too bad it’s because he’s afraid of losing his seat in the Senate instead of just using his better judgment.
