NRSC puts Brendan Johnson on notice that they “wont give him a pass” upon his resignation

The Press Conference at which Brendan Johnson has announced his resignation (Effective 3/11, I believe) is still going on, but the National Republican Senatorial Committee is wasting no time in going after Johnson, likely in case Democrats manage to recruit him to take on John Thune.

I personally don’t think that’s going to happen, but it’s politics, and anything goes!  Here’s the release from the Republican US Senator’s Political organization:


 NRSC Statement Regarding Brendan Johnson’s Departure As U.S. Attorney

WASHINGTON – With Brendan Johnson, the son of former Senator Tim Johnson, set to quit his job as the United States Attorney for the District of South Dakota, the NRSC released the statement regarding his impending departure.

“It became clear that young Brendan Johnson was not ready for the job, once his father had to pull a few strings to get him a hearing and the votes for his confirmation. Brendan should know the next time he steps into the ring we won’t give him a pass, nor will his dad be able to bail him out.” – NRSC spokeswoman Andrea Bozek

  1. Well, I think that if he is as much of a socialist as his daddy, we don’t want him and American, and Freedom, don’t need him.

      1. there’s a difference … communists oppress you directly, socialists simply tell you the communist with a gun is your friend.

  2. Mighty tough talk from Ms. Bozek. I’m absolutely sure that Johnson is shaking in his loafers over that one!

  3. Classy paying the “daddy card” when we’ve got guys named Bush, Paul and Romney in our camp. Really, do any of these staffers take more than a nano-second to think before they fire off another mindless release, tweet or post?

    How about “we respect his service to the nation, and hope he will use his experiences defending the United States to illustrate to his fellow trial lawyers how their excessive litigation, frivolous legal delays and blocking of tort reform harms our country”

    Name-calling don’t win elections, even ones that haven’t started yet.

  4. NRSC release seems a little over-the-top to me. It makes us look afraid of a potential Johnson entry into the Senate race. Amateurish

    Sorry. Just an honest opinion.

    1. the state gop was pretty quiet on tom daschle and stephanie herseth a lot of the time, especially when they were facing lackluster republicans at the ballot box. i like any input the national leaders have on these topics.
