JANESVILLE, Wisconsin – Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson has denied safety concerns while speaking at President Trump’s rally in Janesville on Saturday.
The senator spoke to the crowd in support of President Trump before the president’s inauguration. He told voters that an “in-depth choice” would be made on election day.
Johnson spoke on issues such as the economy, the pandemic and media coverage of the election, telling the crowd that if Biden won, the country would be unrecognizable.
Despite the reaction of doctors, local leaders and Governor Tony Evers, Johnson told News 3 Now he is not worried about the safety of the rally.
“I don’t think it’s going to be a super distributor,” Johnson said. “I personally don’t think there’s much risk here.”
Johnson’s appearance at the rally comes about two weeks after he tested positive for Covid-19. He said it was a “living testimony” to how many people were not experiencing symptoms of the virus.
“The rest of us, we have to get on with our lives,” Johnson said. “People are learning to live with Kovid.”
