MILWAUKEE (AP) – Wisconsin’s Republican Sen. Ron Johnson says Milwaukee hosting the Democratic National Convention next year will provide a “first-hand look at Democrats’ extreme policies.”

Johnson and fellow Republicans are also saying bringing the convention to Wisconsin could serve to motivate Republicans to re-elect President Donald Trump.

The Democratic National Committee announced Monday it was picking Milwaukee over Miami and Houston.

Johnson says Wisconsin Republicans will see the risk of “socialist tendencies” from Democrats.

Wisconsin Republican Party director Mark Jefferson says it’s “only fitting” that Democrats chose to come to Milwaukee over Miami and Houston because Milwaukee has elected three socialist mayors.



Jefferson says Wisconsin will “reap the economic benefits of a convention,” while Democrats show why they can’t be trusted to run the country.
