COVID-Infected GOP Senator Willing To Risk Colleagues’ Lives To Vote For Trump’s SCOTUS Nominee

U.S. Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI), who tested positive for COVID-19 over the weekend, told a radio talk show on Monday that he will make his way to the Senate floor to vote to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court bench even if he is still sick with the virus.

“If we have to go in and vote, I’ve already told leadership I’ll go in a moon suit,” Johnson said. Adding that he felt “perfectly normal” without any symptoms. He also said he didn’t know where he became infected but would be going for follow-up testing and blood work.

Johnson wasn’t the only Republican senator to test positive. Senators Mike Lee (UT) and Thom Tillis (NC) also contracted the virus.

Regardless, Lindsey Graham has announced that they will hold a hearing for Barrett’s confirmation.
