If the people behind popular card game "Cards Against Humanity" are to be believed, Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson is about to get a bunch of potatoes sent to his Milwaukee office.

The announcement was made on Twitter Thursday. The company behind the game said it will mail Senator Johnson potatoes until he holds a town hall in Wisconsin, something the senator has faced increasing pressure over in recent weeks as other legislators around the country hold their own gatherings.

The game's co-creator, Max Temkin, is hoping individuals will pitch in for the potatoes as well - at $5 a pop.

Senator Johnson currently holds telephone town halls, which you can sign up for on his website.

In a statement given to TODAY'S TMJ4, Senator Johnson's office said it would be donating any potatoes received to local food pantries:

“Senator Johnson has held 73 in-person town halls and 56 telephone town halls, and he will continue to travel our state to speak with Wisconsinites about their concerns. We look forward to partnering with Pastor Jerome Smith, Sr. and other faith leaders to help Milwaukeeans and their families by donating any potatoes we receive to food pantries throughout the city. Instead of spending $5 on a 38 cent potato, I’d encourage people to donate directly to their local food pantry to help those in need in their community.”
