The Republican Party of Texas is pleased to announce that we have confirmed United States Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin as one of our featured speakers at the 2012 Texas GOP Convention Gala Banquet on Friday, June 8, 2012 at the Fort Worth Convention Center. Senator Johnson will be joining former Senator Rick Santorum as our co-keynote speaker at the Gala.
Senator Johnson went to Washington because the federal government is bankrupting America. He thinks it is important for citizen legislators to ally with those who are seriously facing that reality. Ron’s manufacturing background has taught him to attack the root cause of a problem, not mere symptoms. He believes huge deficits, slow economic activity, high unemployment and woefully inadequate job creation are severe symptoms of the problem – but not the root cause. The ever expanding size, scope and cost of government is the real problem.
Senator Johnson serves on the committees on Appropriations, Budget, Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs and Aging. He resides in Oshkosh, Wisconsin with his wife Jane. They have three children.
Chairman Munisteri stated, "I am very pleased that we have been able to confirm Senator Johnson’s participation at our Convention Gala. Senator Johnson is one of our rising stars in the Republican Party. He has become a national favorite of Republicans as a champion for Conservative values of free enterprise, individual liberty and the Constitution. I have seen him numerous times on national talk shows and his story and views are compelling.”
