Senator Johnson Address Trump and Ryan Controversy
Several prominent Republican leaders are skipping Trump's visit to Green Bay on Friday.
Governor Scott Walker won't be at the Trump event and neither will be Speaker Paul Ryan or Senator Ron Johnson.
In fact, our David Ade found out they will be on a different campaign trail together.
He joins us live in the newsroom with more on those plans.
Mike, Senator Johnson telling me that he will not be in Green Bay tomorrow because he will be holding rallies with Speaker Ryan in Kenosha and says he has other events tomorrow night.
"In these campaigns all these events get brought together so quickly and we've got our schedules already set. I'm a business guy, I honor commitments so I just couldn't make it up there,” said Johnson.
Johnson made it clear he wants trump to endorse Speaker Ryan and Ryan's house policy.
CBS 58’s David Ade also asked Johnson about the comments Ryan made on Donald Trump.
"Today Paul Ryan said that his endorsement of Donald Trump is not a blank check. Is your endorsement a blank check,” asked David Ade.
"Well they never are. I've always consistently said that I will support the areas of agreement. I can lay out the litany again. We have to grow our economy. We have to strengthen our economy. We have to defeat ISIS,” said Johnson.
Johnson also said he wants trump to apologize to the Khans, the gold star family who spoke out against trump at the DNC Convention.
