With Ron Johnson ranking second on the top 10 most vulnerable senators list, Tim Phillips, President of Americans for Prosperity – the Koch’s front group - touted their favorite candidates to Politico Pro. To no one’s surprise, Ron Johnson is high on their list and they are promising to spend big for him. Of course the Kochs want to keep Johnson where he is: he’s put their interests ahead of Wisconsin, voting with the Kochs nearly 90 percent of the time.
“The Koch Brothers have found a friend in Ron Johnson, whose voted with the special interest nearly 90 percent of the time rather than the people of Ohio,” said Lauren Passalacqua, DSCC National Press Secretary. “Unfortunately for Johnson, no amount of spending by Koch-funded dark money groups will change his record of voting against Wisconsin’s best interests and Wisconsin voters will remember that on Election Day.”
