WI-SEN: Wisconsin Democrats make ad buy calling on Johnson to resign

he Wisconsin Democratic Party is placing a six-figure ad buy calling on Sen. Ron Johnson (R) to resign in the wake of last week’s breach of the Capitol.

“A violent mob attacks the Capitol, incited by power-hungry politicians like Ron Johnson,” a narrator says in the 30-second ad spot as footage of the riot flashes across the screen before eventually proclaiming that Johnson is “unfit to serve.”

The ad marks the Wisconsin Democratic Party’s first of the 2022 election cycle, when Johnson is slated to appear on the ballot. He has not yet said whether he will seek a third term in the Senate.

A spokesperson for Johnson’s office did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment on the ad.

The ad is an early preview of how Democrats plan to seize on last week’s events, which saw a mob of President Trump’s supporters lay siege to the Capitol as Congress met to certify President-elect Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory.

The riots, which left five people dead, including a Capitol Police officer, have intensified criticism of Trump and some of his Republican allies in Congress, who spread false allegations that the 2020 presidential election had been marred by widespread voter fraud and systemic irregularities.
