Trump Ally Ron Johnson Gets Massive Win For GOP, Beats Dem Challenger Madela Barnes In Wisconsin

Strong Trump ally GOP Sen. Ron Johnson has won re-election to a third term in Wisconsin NBC News is projecting. Johnson pulled out a win against Democrat Mandela Barnes in a must-win for the GOP if they want to win back the Senate.

Johnson said before the media called the race: “The corporate media is refusing to call a race that is over. The votes are in in all Democrat strongholds, municipalities are reporting 100% of wards are in and counted.

“There are some counties that have anywhere from 3-10% of the votes outstanding. These localities represent areas where we are winning by over 60%. There is no path mathematically for Lt. Gov. Barnes to overcome his 27,374 vote deficit. 

“This race is over. 

“Truth has prevailed over lies and the politics of personal destruction. 

“I want to thank my family and everyone who supported me and worked so hard to save this U.S. Senate seat. 

“I will do everything I can to help make things better for Wisconsinites and to heal and unify our country.”

With 98.91% of the vote in, Johnson had 50.5% of the vote to 49.5% for Barnes, a difference of about 27,000 votes.

Barnes campaign spokeswoman Maddy McDaniel said earlier: “We always knew this race would be incredibly close. 

“No matter what anyone says, we are committed to making sure every vote is counted. 

“We will wait and see what the Wisconsin voters have decided after all their voices are heard.”
