JANESVILLE, Wisconsin – Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson denied security concerns when he spoke at President Trump’s rally in Janesville on Saturday.
The Senator spoke to the crowd in support of President Trump ahead of the President’s appearance. He told voters that “a profound decision will be made” on election day.
Speaking on topics like the economy, the pandemic and media coverage of the elections, Johnson told the crowd that if Biden wins, the country will be unrecognizable.
Despite backlash from doctors, local leaders and Governor Tony Evers, Johnson told News 3 Now that he was not concerned about the safety of the rally.
“I don’t think this is going to be a super-spreader event,” said Johnson. “Personally, I don’t think there’s much risk out here.”
Johnson’s appearance at the rally comes about two weeks after testing positive for Covid-19. He said he was a “living testament” to how many people don’t have symptoms of the virus.
“The rest of us is up to us to get on with our lives,” said Johnson. “People learn to live with Covid.”
