News: Johnson’s campaign moves

We have two bits of news for you on Speaker Mike Johnson’s political operation.

First: Johnson is transferring $1.5 million to the NRCC today. That brings Johnson’s total transferred to the campaign arm to $6.5 million since he became speaker in late October.

“Working with the NRCC and our entire team, we will win in battlegrounds across the country and put a stop to President Biden and extreme Democrats’ disastrous agenda,” Johnson told us in a statement.

Second: Johnson and his entire leadership team are endorsing Orlando Sonza, the Republican challenging freshman Rep. Greg Landsman (D-Ohio) in a swing seat.

Sonza is a Filipino-American West Point graduate who currently serves as a local prosecutor in Hamilton County, Ohio.

“He will secure the Southern Border, take care of our veterans, and put an end to the disastrous policies of Bidenomics,” Johnson said of Sonza in his endorsement statement.

Landsman unseated longtime former Rep. Steve Chabot (R-Ohio) in 2022.
