Patrick Marley reports Ron Johnson says the Wisconsin presidential results were ‘not skewed’ in a conversation with a woman posing as a conservative:
As Wisconsin Republicans in recent days widened a review of the presidential election, U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson told a woman the only reason Donald Trump lost the state was because he didn’t perform as well as other GOP candidates on the ballot.
The Oshkosh Republican made the comment to a liberal activist who posed as a conservative at a Republican event held Sunday. She posted a video of their exchange on Twitter on Tuesday.
“There’s nothing obviously skewed about the results,” Johnson said.
He noted Republicans collectively received more votes in races for other offices.
“If all the Republicans voted for Trump the way they voted for the Assembly candidates, he would have won,” Johnson said. “He didn’t get 51,000 votes that other Republicans got, and that’s why he lost.”
Johnson’s right about this, of course. Why he’s departing from the GOP and WISGOP conspiracy theories on the election — when he has endorsed and pushed other party-line consipracy theories — one cannot say.
