GOP banking on Ron Johnson run in crucial Senate race

  GOP banking on Ron Johnson run in crucial Senate race Republicans are growing bullish that Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson will launch his reelection campaign in 2022, setting the stage for a bruising race that could determine control of the Senate and whether former President Donald Trump will continue to have one of his staunchest allies in the chamber. © Samuel Corum/Getty Images Sen. Ron Johnson answers questions from reporters in February 2021 in Washington, DC. Johnson has been in no rush to publicly announce his decision, often saying that Senate campaigns are far too long and pointing out that he waited until May 2010 to announce his first bid for an election later that fall.

The Senate Majority PAC on Friday rolled out a $1 million ad buy against incumbent Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), becoming the latest Democratic group to hit Johnson on air following the announcement of his reelection bid.

The top Senate Democratic super PAC's ad is set to be aired on television markets in the Badger State, as well as on digital and streaming platforms.

The ad comes after Johnson's campaign released two ads after he announced he would seek a third term in the upper chamber. In one of the ads, Johnson explained why he was running for another term despite saying six years ago that he would only serve two terms in the Senate.

The Senate Majority PAC ad hits Johnson over the comments.

"It's no surprise Johnson broke his promise to only serve two Senate terms," the ad says.
