‘This will be close’: Race prognosticator reveals more bad news for Democrats just days away from midterms

The Cook Political Report adjusted its ratings for another battleground race in Republican favor just days before Election Day, giving the GOP the edge in Wisconsin Senate race.

A political prognosticator on Friday moved the race between incumbent Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., and Democratic Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes from a toss-up to “Lean Republican.”

“Like most elections in Wisconsin, this one will be close, but voters should remember: Mandela Barnes is an extremist who wants more of the same Biden economic policies that led to 40-year high inflation and record gas prices, and he wants to defund the police,” Johnson campaign spokesman Mike Marinella told Fox News Digital.

Barnes did not respond to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.
