Washington, D.C. – In response to Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson’s announcement that he will run for reelection this year, LCV Victory Fund issued the following statement from Regional Campaigns Director Joann Saridakis:
“Unlike Ron Johnson, Wisconsin voters know climate change is not bullshit. Wisconsinites deserve a U.S. senator committed to lowering prices, creating good-paying jobs, and building a healthier, more equitable clean energy future – not Ron Johnson, a longtime climate-denier with an astounding 0% score on LCV’s 2020 Scorecard. As Wisconsin families suffer following a year of record-breaking heat and costly extreme weather events, on top of another year of a devastating and deadly pandemic, Johnson’s allegiance is with the fossil fuel industry that has donated over $600,000 to his campaigns. Climate and environmental justice are on the ballot in Wisconsin in 2022 and LCV Victory Fund is all in to defeat one of the staunchest climate deniers in U.S. history.”
