From Wisconsin Republican Senator Ron Johnson on his endorsement of Republican George Allen for U.S. Senate:
I spent 31 years helping build a manufacturing business from the ground up. Today we make every ounce of our product in the USA and sell it across America and in over two dozen nations. We are proud to say, we don't export jobs, we export plastic.Check out George Allen's website -- www.GeorgeAllen.com -- to make a contribution to the campaign and for more information about how to become involved in this very important election.
I have experienced first-hand the burdens Washington places on small business and the American people. The 1.75 trillion dollars a year of federal regulation, the trillion dollar deficits as far as the eye can see and the massive debt.
Washington is broken and bankrupting America.
We must change the spending and debt culture in Washington. It is why I ran. It is the fight I fight every day.
It will take people who exhibit a special kind of strength to change Washington.
It is why I'm proud to support George Allen for US Senate, and I wanted you to be one of the first to know.
It was an easy decision for me.
George Allen was one of only 15 Senators who voted against the Bridge to Nowhere and pushed for a Balanced Budget Amendment and a Line-Item Veto, two things he's running on today.
We need more allies in Congress like him, willing to fight to get our country back on the right track.
But I know George's election won't be easy - taking on President Obama's handpicked DNC Chairman is a steep challenge.
They will stop at nothing to reward his loyal service supporting all of the President's significant policies.
Even running for Senate, Tim Kaine calls himself an "unabashed" supporter of the President and remains one of Obamacare's biggest supporters - calling it one of President Obama's "great achievements."
The last thing we need in the U.S. Senate is a blindly loyal follower of President Obama and his failed policies that are threatening the American Dream.
What we do need are more leaders like George Allen.
I'm hoping you'll join me in supporting him today.
He needs all our help, and I think this is a race worth investing in.
