Congressional action not pushing Johnson towards re-election bid yet

Despite saying he is more panicked for the United States now than he was when he first ran in 2010, you will not find U.S. Senator Ron Johnson pushing for his re-election yet.

 

The Wisconsin Republican has been critical of many of the actions taken by the Biden Administration, the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives, and the evenly-split Senate. In a recent interview with a New York City-based radio station, he said the middle class will be taking the brunt of the $2 trillion Build Back Better Act, which includes a minimum 15 percent tax rate for corporations reporting at least $1 billion in profits, tax credits for solar panel installation, universal preschool, and the expansion of affordable home care and housing programs. Johnson says that the bill will only further increase the deficit like the recently signed infrastructure legislation, but it was not enough to commit to running for a third term quite yet.

Johnson does have over six months to file the necessary paperwork to run for re-election. Several Democrats are jockeying for their position to run against Johnson if he does decide to go for a third term. Brad Beyer, a reserve officer in the United States Army, announced in October that he would run for the U.S. Senate as a Republican.
