Ron Johnson came up in Tuesday’s Jan. 6 committee hearing, when it was revealed Johnson’s chief of staff contacted former Vice President Mike Pence’s staff about Johnson giving Pence alternate slates of electors.

Mandela Barnes, state Treasurer Sarah Godlewski and Outagamie County Executive Tom Nelson — called on Johnson to resign.
