Even though he has not yet announced that he is running, and I certainly hope he does, I am giving my Complete and Total Endorsement to Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin.
He is brave, he is bold, he loves our Country, our Military, and our Vets. He will protect our Second Amendment, and everything else we stand for. It is the kind of courage we need in the U.S. Senate.
He has no idea how popular he is. Run, Ron, Run! Continued Below

We want brilliant, strong, thoughtful, and compassionate leadership,” President Trump said in a statement.
Most recently, he announced his “complete and total endorsement” for Congressman Mo Brooks (R-AL) in the U.S. Senate race. Continued Below
