DUH! I said that two months ago: Senator Ron Johnson IS Running For Re-election.
But today we have this thunderous pre-announcement announcement at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:
U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson appears poised to announce as early as next week that he’s running for reelection, according to two highly placed Republican sources.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has learned that in recent weeks Johnson reached out to potential staffers and advisers in preparation for the campaign.
Johnson has drawn out his decision-making for months even as a large field of Democrats assembled to take him on in the midterms. By running, he’ll be breaking a past campaign pledge to serve only two terms.
And as I’ve said before, if he were a party man and wasn’t running he would have let the other potential candidates have a better shot at organizing a campaign by bowing out late last year.
So there you have it!
