Over at his campaign’s website, Republican U.S. Senate candidate Ron Johnson is touting all the grassroots support he’s received, but there’s just a few problems.
Let’s start with this passage from Johnson’s website:
“As Ron travels the state talking and listening to voters about changing Washington…”
Ron Johnson may be listening to some voters about changing Washington, but clearly he’s not spending much time listening to folks from the various Tea Party groups here in Wisconsin.
And then there’s this doozy:
“Ron’s campaign is picking up steam with support from voters across the state…”
If there is a true grassroots campaign in the Republican U.S. Senate primary, it’s being run by Dave Westlake, not Ron Johnson. As I’ve stated time and time again, Johnson’s running a campaign straight out of the Republican campaign playbook, a campaign that’s heavy on consultants and their influence while being thin on actual substance.
