GOP Sen. Ron Johnson, facing a tough reelection bid in his home state of Wisconsin, said Sunday that Donald Trump's nomination as the party's standard-bearer isn't a sure thing.

The startling assertion came during an interview with CNN's "State of the Union," when Johnson shifted positions from his declaration last month he'd back the presumptive nominee.

"To me, 'endorsement' is a big embrace," he said. "It basically shows that I pretty well agree with an individual on almost everything. That's not necessarily going to be the case with our nominee."

Pressed on whether he'd endorse Trump, Johnson added: "It's been my intention to endorse the nominee. Nobody can predict the outcome of this thing. I think things remain reasonably uncertain."

Then asked again if he'd endorse Trump, Johnson replied:

"I intend to support the Republican nominee and certainly support the areas of agreement, growing our economy, defeating ISIS, strengthening our border. No two people agree on everything. I’ll support the areas of agreement."

Last month, Johnson told the Eau Claire Wisconsin Leader-Telegram he was "going to certainly" endorse Trump.
