Johnson Booed at End of Debate

Senator Johnson (R-WI) has been in a back-and-forth race since the outset with Lt. Governor Mandela Barnes for the duration.

Barnes’ extremist agenda has been exposed considerably over the last month or so.

That has led to a flip in the race, with Johnson now pulling out in the lead by about five points.

He may have put that all at risk with an ill-advised comment at the end of the debate.


The candidates were asked what they found admirable about their opponent.

Barnes led off, stating, “The senator has proven to be a family man, and I think that’s admirable.

“You know, that’s absolutely to be respected.

“He speaks about his family. [He’s] done a lot to provide for them. I absolutely respect that.”

Then came Johnson, who started off okay, then took a page out of Trump’s book.

He stated, “I mean, likewise, I appreciate the fact that Lt. Gov. Barnes had loving parents, a school teacher, father who worked third shift. So he had a good upbringing.

“I guess what puzzles me about that is with that upbringing, why has he turned against America?”

That brought about a round of boos from the crowd.

I am not even saying he is wrong, but it was just an ill-timed quip that makes him look bad in a race where every vote will count.
