STATEMENT FROM THE LINCOLN PROJECT REGARDING RON JOHNSON’S ADMISSION ABOUT THE 2020 ELECTION
August 31, 2021 – Tuesday, August 31, Republican Senator Ron Johnson was caught on tape acknowledging Joe Biden won the state of Wisconsin in 2020 and blaming Donald Trump for the loss. “The only reason Trump lost Wisconsin, is that 51,000 Republican voters didn’t vote for him.” In response, The Lincoln Project released the following statement:
“Today, Ron Johnson admitted what all Americans, and Republican leaders, know to be true: Joe Biden won the safest, most secure election in our nation’s history. The Republican Party has used the Big Lie to push anti-voting laws, incite violence, and ignore the needs of their constituents. Ron Johnson’s comments illustrate the cynicism that courses through the GOP.
“The Lincoln Project will hold these Republicans accountable for their words and deeds.”
