Johnson; Barnes aim to frame other as too extreme for Wisconsin

FOND DU LAC, Wis. (WFRV)-With control of the U.S. Senate potentially at stake, the race between Ron Johnson and Mandela Barnes is being watched closely by people all over the country.

The candidates were in full campaign mode on Saturday.

Republican incumbent Ron Johnson visited the grand opening of the new office space for the Republican Party of Fond du Lac County.

Johnson is running for his third term as U.S. senator after first getting elected to the position in 2010.

“Driving around Wisconsin people come up to me literally tears in their eyes or streaming down their eyes talking about we got to save this country, it’s why we decided to run again,” said Johnson.
