Wisconsin Sen. Johnson says he, Trump are 'change agents'

20 Octubre 2016

The truth is he's anything but.

The ability to steer clear of the media has become a necessary skill for a vulnerable Senate Republican looking to survive in the Year of Donald Trump.

Ron Johnson said both he and Donald Trump are change agents, defended himself from charges that he's in the pocket of special interests by saying "I am the working man" and accused the signature campaign finance reform championed by his challenger Russ Feingold as a "spectacular failure" in a debate Tuesday.

"Your right to keep and bear arms, your ability to protect your family is at risk", Johnson said in the ad, which was posted online in August 2016. Johnson won that, ending Feingold's 18-year run in the Senate.

More than 800,000 of Ron Johnson's constituents have student loans totaling $19 billion in federal student loan debt alone, according to OWN.

From the outset, the two candidates made it clear that they would spend a lot of time trying to tie each other to their party's presidential candidate.

Feingold accuses Johnson of not doing enough as senator to tackle issues such as fighting terrorism, immigration reform and campaign finance laws.

"We need to do the opposite of what Senator Johnson's proposed". He is running for reelection to his Senate seat this cycle.

Johnson says as a businessman he is more in touch with what Wisconsin residents want, while Feingold is a career politician who thinks problems can be solved with more government programs.

Feingold said Johnson has "been a key part" in Republican opposition to confirming Merrick Garland, President Barack Obama's pick to the court to replace the late Antonin Scalia.

Two years later in McDonald v. City of Chicago, the Supreme Court effectively extended Heller.

"It's sad that Senator Feingold, he said he's fighting for the middle class. My business provided great paying jobs, careers", Johnson said. She didn't cite examples, but Feingold was the only senator to vote against the Patriot Act. Johnson's campaign has expressed confidence that the race is close based on its internal polling data. FiveThirtyEight ranks Wisconsin's "tipping-point chance", or the probability that the state's Senate race will decide whether Democrats or Republicans attain a majority, at 2.9 percent.

Silverman called Feingold "one of the very few totally righteous politicians who has always voted on the right side of history". The debate was moderated by Mike Gousha. Recent polls show Feingold's lead is diminishing.

The 90-minute event, beginning at 8:30 Marquette University Law School in Milwaukee, will be a return to the debate stage after the first debate Friday. "We have to also make sure that these big companies that have been pushing these painkillers have a little accountability, they have a responsibility here too", Feingold says.

Lee M. Miringoff, the director of the Marist College Institute for Public Opinion, said he agreed with FiveThirtyEight's assessment of Wisconsin, deeming it "a pretty pivotal state" for both political parties.
