WASHINGTON – The Wisconsin seat in the U.S. Senate held by Republican Ron Johnson is vulnerable to going Democratic in the 2022 election whether Johnson seeks a third term or not, according to a CNN analysis. Cash is an issue, CNN said, noting that Johnson, though wealthy, has only $500,000 in his campaign war chest. Also, said CNN, Johnson’s unwavering support for President Trump and his odd theories about the January 6 invasion of the Capitol may hurt his viability. In 2020, CNN noted, Joe Biden flipped Wisconsin Democratic, which may signal a long-run blue shift.
