Wisconsin’s Johnson to stump with McFadden

Published 4:39 pm Saturday, October 25, 2014

ST. PAUL — A neighbor from the east is coming to Minnesota to give Republican U.S. Senate candidate Mike McFadden a boost.

Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson was expected to join McFadden in Rochester Saturday for a meet-and-greet with supporters. McFadden has pointed to Johnson as a political role model — like McFadden, the Wisconsin Republican was a businessman prior to winning his seat in 2010.

It’s Johnson’s visit to Minnesota to stump for McFadden in his race against Democratic Sen. Al Franken. He previously campaigned with McFadden in September.

Saturday’s stop comes after a parade of Democrat stars to Minnesota — like first lady Michelle Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton — to rally voters for Franken.
