U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson stopped short of declaring victory in his race against Mandela Barnes, though he told supporters he saw no way for his Dem rival to make up the margin.

The Oshkosh Republican told supporters he planned to wait until all the numbers were in and planned to declare victory in the morning.

“I just want to give you guys the sense this race is over,” Johnson told supporters.

Barnes spokesperson Maddy McDaniel said, “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.”

With 93 percent of the vote in, Johnson was at 50.7 percent, while Barnes was at 49.3. It was a margin of more than 38,000 votes.
