Senator Russ Feingold’s Foreign Policy is Dangerous and Out of Touch
[Madison, Wis.] – As global threats to America and its allies overseas continue to grow, Wisconsin needs a leader who puts the safety of the country before radical ideology. Ron Johnson is leading the charge and fighting to do everything necessary to keep Wisconsinites safe from harm. At the same time, Senator Russ Feingold is doubling down on his radical ideology and praising Barack Obama’s poor handling of crises around the world.
“Senator Feingold’s only solution to our national security threats is the formation of another government-run committee, and he couldn’t be more out of touch with the threats we face each day,” said Pat Garrett, spokesman for the Republican Party of Wisconsin. “Ron Johnson continues to bring people together behind commonsense solutions to keep our country safe, meanwhile Feingold clings to a rigid foreign policy that isn’t working and has America leading from behind.”
Ron Johnson Is Working to Protect Wisconsin
- Ron Johnson is the Senate author of a bipartisan bill to require that we fully vet Syrian refugees before they are admitted to the United States, ensuring that America’s safety remains the top focus.
- Johnson continues to be on the forefront of calling for a broad-based comprehensive strategy to combat ISIS.
- Johnson remains a steadfast advocate for our allies as he works to protect American interests overseas.
Politician Russ Feingold’s Extreme and Dangerous Foreign Policy
- Senator Feingold voted against dozens of measures to improve U.S intelligence efforts designed to keep us safe from threats abroad.
- Senator Feingold’s own campaign took big money from a Political Action Committee and lobbyist bundler that opposes imposing sanctions on Iran, despite railing against the influence of lobbyists for much of his career.
- Senator Feingold has fully endorsed Barack Obama’s failed foreign policy – a rigid ideology that now has a vast majority of Americans disapproving of the way he is handling ISIS.
Wisconsin voters face a choice: someone who will bring people together and lead the fight to improve U.S intelligence and our national security or a politician like Senator Feingold whose agenda is out of step with the growing global threats America faces. Learn more at www.wisgop.org.
