“Even though he has not yet announced that he is running, and I certainly hope he does, I am giving my Complete and Total Endorsement to Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin,” Mr. Trump said in a statement. “He is brave, he is bold, he loves our Country, our Military, and our Vets.”
Mr. Johnson defeated then-Sen. Russ Feingold as part of the Tea Party wave of 2010, and survived a rematch in 2016.
During the 2016 contest, Mr. Johnson said that was his final race and he would not seek a third term.
But his future now appears to be more up in the air — particularly given the nudge from Mr. Trump.
