Sen. Ron Johnson Is Quite Pleased Roy Moore Lost

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) did not mince words when asked to comment on Tuesday night's election results in Alabama. When asked what he believed the "message" from last night was, Johnson said that "Alabamians didn't want somebody who dated 14-year-old girls." 

He then said that Steve Bannon should learn that the GOP needs better candidates in order to win Senate races before going into an office away from the camera. 

NBC News tweeted a video of the exchange.

Well, golly. Tell us how you really feel, Johnson, don't hold back!

Johnson has been critical of Roy Moore after nine women came forward to say he behaved inappropriately towards them. In November, Johnson said the allegations were disqualifying and said that if he were elected, he doubted that the Senate would actually seat him. He also said that if he were in Moore's shoes, he would have resigned as a candidate. 

Moore was defeated by Democrat Doug Jones by a slim margin. He has refused to concede the race.

How does he feel about Senator Menendez having sex with underage prostitutes? What, the fake news media didn’t ask?

This RINO must be defeated, if you live in Wisconsin vote for the democrat if this guy manages to win the primary.

The Republican party is toast as long as we got ‘friends’ like this willing to believe every man is guilty until proven innocent of any crime anyone accuses them of.

Johnson also at one point was against the new tax plan. He’s better than the Democrat who would have been Russ Feingold (ultra-liberal) but I still hear a number of negatives about him.

Ronnie would much prefer a guy who wants to push that 14 year-old girl to get an abortion and have the baby murdered as it is exiting the womb.

At some point in his life Johnson also dated teenage girls (like when he was 16)

and now we have the precedent of some of them coming out just before his next reelection to testify that he molested them-

wait for it

Johnson was also against Ted Cruz’s filibuster against Obamacare.

Here is one in Wisconsin that will not give him my vote. Since he does not believe in due process then he has no right to be making laws.

Not too surprising either. All these people run as Americans and soon after getting to the District of Corruption they become self serving politicians.

And I haven’t seen any evidence that Moore did any of those things. Frankly, I don’t care what he might have done almost 40 years ago. None of us are the same person we were 40 years prior to now. People change. I’m sick of the deep state and the media paying women to whore themselves to forward their agenda to destroy any conservative candidate that they are afraid of and need to take down. I hope Roy Moore has the funds to prosecute these women and dig out the truth. If they are lying they need jail time. If they are telling the truth, that needs to be proven too.

No woman, no matter how delicate and ‘scared’ she is, should be taken seriously almost 40 years after the fact, especially close to an election.

I’m not saying I’m a huge fan of Moore but he was the best of what Alabama had to choose from and he would have supported Trump. I don’t like to see any man’s life and career destroyed by predator women, and I’m female. These women make me ashamed of my gender.

I hope that patriots apply what we’re learning from the Alabama race to the 2018 elections.

The ill-conceived 17th Amendment needs to disappear.

Patriots now need to be making sure that there are plenty of state sovereignty-respecting, Trump-supporting patriot candidates on the 2018 primary ballots and pink slip career lawmakers by sending patriot candidate lawmakers to D.C. on election day.

Moore, even in Alabama, wasn’t popular at all. It was a total miscalculation for Bannon to get behind him especially when you had Mo Brooks as a potential candidate.

Many people believed there was some smoke with all the fire, despite falsified evidence. People can smell a pattern of behavior. Plus Moore was not charismatic and did not have any crossover appeal. In other words, he was like Ted Cruz - the conservatives dream candidate but no one elses.

He just got reelected and doesn’t care. He’s just interested in stopping MAGA now.
