EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- Republican U.S. Senator Ron Johnson met community members to show support in the area and discuss federal issues.

Johnson addressed the strong state economy in Wisconsin and at the national level during a luncheon in Eau Claire.

He says it's not an accident and there's a more competitive tax system in place. He says current policies in place can be reversed quickly if people make the, "wrong choice and elect democrats."

Johnson also says Gov. Walker deserves to be re-elected.

"There’s been a lot of good news, in terms of governance that doesn't get reported. We’re not talking government shutdowns because we're actually appropriating and funding the government. We've passed 5-year reauthorizations on a highway bill,” said Johnson.

Johnson says right now he's traveling all across the state to support as many republicans he can before the November election.
