It’s an interesting selection for President Obama to make, but good for Senator Johnson. The U.N. has become fairly useless (did you notice that Obama did not go to the U.N. about ISIS, Ukraine, Libya, etc…?), but it will benefit from Johnson’s voice.
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is nominating Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson to serve as a representative to the 69th session of the United Nations General Assembly that begins Tuesday.
The Oshkosh Republican’s name was among a slate of presidential nominations announced Friday afternoon.
“I am proud to nominate such impressive men and women to these important roles, and I am grateful they have agreed to lend their considerable talents to this Administration,” Obama said in a statement. “I look forward to working with them in the months and years ahead.”
