Senator Ron Johnson called ‘virus that infects’ GOP by Wisconsin newspaper

Johnson is “little more than a placeholder” for former President Donald Trump who “couldn’t care less what Wisconsin Republicans think,” the newspaper’s editorial board wrote in the scathing essay published Wednesday.

The Times described Johnson as “a delusional peddler” and political con man in the article that traced his own 105-year history alongside the evolution of Republican politics, for the worse, in the state.

“We are not naive. We don’t imagine dislodging Johnson in his own party’s primary is a likely prospect. But we believe he should be challenged, sincerely and aggressively,” the board said, suggesting that a serious GOP primary challenger could expose “how out of sync he is” with traditional GOP values. .

“By confronting and exposing the incumbent as the charlatan that he is, such a challenge could lay the groundwork for a slow but necessary restoration of the honor of the Grand Old Party, which has been so badly damaged by political crooks such than Ron Johnson,” the board concluded.
