Sen. Ron Johnson

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A "panicked" Sen. Ron Johnson urged members of the state chamber of commerce in battleground Wisconsin on Wednesday to vote for President Donald Trump, saying he has been praying for a victory and "the other side is not in love with this country."

Johnson, a Republican in his second term, delivered a harsh assessment of what he thinks a win by Democrat Joe Biden would mean during a virtual meeting of Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce. Johnson decried "anarchists" and "rioters" who he said "are going to dictate to you what you think and how you have to act."
