Senator Ron Johnson spoke with Joe ‘Pags’ Pagliarulo this week to explain why the Democratic Party is so afraid of the Republican lawmaker from Wisconsin.

“Thank God for a guy like you. A businessman who decided to fight for the future of this nation,” said Pags.

“I’m doing it because I love this country. It’s rare and precious and we’re losing it. The Democrats are driving it into a ditch,” explained Johnson.

“The vitriol of our politics… I hate the division, I hate the anger. But this country is worth fighting for,” he added.
