Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson endorsed Mitt Romney this morning during an appearance on Meet the Press.
RON JOHNSON: I'm a business guy from Oshkosh, Wisconsin. I have 33 years experience in the private sector. I've been in Washington now for 15 months. I certainly understand a big part of our problem is the fact that this president and members of his administration have no private sector experience whatsoever. And Governor Romney has 25 years of experience in the private sector, plus, he has executive experience in government. And I never did intend to endorse anybody, but I've had the opportunity to meet with Governor Romney over the last couple weeks, had long phone conversations with him. I've come away from those conversations fully convinced that Governor Romney is the person to lead our party, to lead our nation.
He fully understands the gravity of our financial situation. He is dedicated toward solving those problems. He is ready, willing, and able to lead this nation, unlike President Obama.
Today, I'm happy to announce my full support and my endorsement of Governor Romney to be the next president of the United States.
I'm looking forward to working with Governor Romney and his team in my new role. I've been asked by Leader McConnell to lead an effort, coordinate our agenda and our message in the House, the Senate, with the presidential candidate, so that we can communicate to the voters of America the very clear choice in our approach. We actually want to rely on the private sector. We know that it's freedom in the free market system versus President Obama's approach, growing government, growing government intrusion in our lives.
I'm looking forward to making sure President Obama is a one-term president.
Every time I hear Ron Johnson speak, it makes me happy. I have a great deal of respect for him. I finally have a senator who truly represents me. I actually have a voice in the Senate.
Ron Johnson reminds me that the majority of Wisconsinites had the good sense to send him to represent us in Washington and fire the radical Leftist Russ Feingold.
Johnson makes an excellent case for supporting Mitt Romney.
I, too, look forward to making Obama a one-term president.
I'm voting for Romney on Tuesday.
