russ-feingoldRuss Feingold is focused on fighting for the middle class and working families of this state, and Sen. Johnson continues to ignore Wisconsinites in favor of corporate interests.

MIDDLETON - Russ for Wisconsin Communications Director Michael Tyler released the following statement in response to today's MU law poll:

"Today’s poll comes on the first day of the general election and is a reminder of the clear choice Wisconsinites face between Russ, who is focused on fighting for the middle class and working families of this state, and Sen. Johnson who continues to ignore Wisconsinites in favor of corporate interests and the billionaires backing his reelection bid. Sen. Johnson has spent years in Washington working to protect a system that props up multi-millionaires like himself and powerful corporations that ship jobs overseas.

ron-johnson"Sen. Johnson will spend the next 90 days doing what he's done his entire time in Washington: serving the oil billionaires, corporate interests, and Washington insiders who fund the super PACs backing his reelection bid. Russ will continue to listen to the people of Wisconsin in all 72 counties of this state who want leaders who will fight for an increase in the federal minimum wage, oppose disastrous trade deals like the TPP, and protect the retirement security of Wisconsin’s seniors. Wisconsinites are sick of politicians who only work for corporate CEOs and billionaires – they want leaders who will fight for an economy that works for everyone. That’s exactly what Russ will do if elected."

donald-trumpMOUNT PLEASANT, WI - Tonight Ryan Solen accepted the nomination to be the Democrat to run for Paul Ryan’s seat in Congress and represent the 1st Congressional District of Wisconsin.

paul_ryanHis happiness over his victory is overshadowed by his concern that Paul Ryan continues to endorse the Republican nominee for President, Donald Trump. After today’s remark in North Carolina where Trump essentially incited violence towards the Democratic nominee for President, Hillary Clinton, Paul Ryan laughed it off after his own acceptance speech, saying he hadn’t seen the remarks.

Ryan Solen hadn’t seen the remarks live, either, but he follows the news closely and recognizes when a candidate is completely out of line. Ryan Solen has endorsed Hillary Clinton but would quickly revoke his endorsement if she had said a fraction of the outrageous, hurtful, and un-American things that Donald Trump regularly says.

ryan-solenRyan Solen wonders how far does Donald Trump need to go for Paul Ryan to end his support? Donald Trump is recognized as the most dangerous man to ever run for President of the United States. Trump’s rhetoric is inflammatory and disrespectful to the office of which he aspires.

Are partisan politics so important to Paul Ryan that he would continue his support for Donald Trump in spite of what is clearly right and wrong? As a Republican leader, Paul Ryan is supposed to be an example to his party and the House of Representatives, but still has not chosen to stand against his party’s flawed nominee.

Many people say that Donald Trump is not a politician, he’s a businessman. Ryan Solen says Trump has been campaigning to be President for over a year and if he hasn’t learned how to be a politician yet he is not going to learn. Paul Ryan has been a politician for 18 years, how can he not see this?

In the 2016 election America is more important than party politics. Ryan Solen doesn’t play games with America’s future. Ryan Solen has challenged Paul Ryan to a debate any time before the start of the next session of Congress. He is awaiting a response.

ron-johnson-verizonWisconsin ranks 49th among states in average internet speed. Verizon has spent $5.4 million in lobbying this year. Is that why he’s opposed faster connections?

MADISON - Yesterday the NY Times ran an expose on Washington think tanks acting as corporate lobbyists, and guess who made a cameo? In a photo, Senator Johnson is seen meeting with a corporate consultant for Verizon (who has already spent $5.4 million in lobbying this year). Now we know why he’s opposed faster internet speeds despite the fact that Wisconsin ranks 49th among states when it comes to download speeds.

“Senator Johnson has taken more than $90,000 from the telecom industry and spends his time in Washington meeting with Verizon’s corporate consultants, so it’s no surprise he opposes faster internet speeds. This photo is just another reminder that Senator Johnson has spent his time in Washington fighting for special interests not Wisconsinites,” said Harry Hartfield, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Wisconsin.
