GOP Ad Slams Radical Mandela Barnes: ‘More Worried About Criminals than Victims’

The Senate Leadership Fund is airing an ad in Wisconsin that slams Democrat U.S. Senate candidate Mandela Barnes for being soft on malefaction. The ad, paid for by a Sen. Mitch McConnell-backed fund, features a woman whose granddaughter was harmed in the 2021 Waukesha Christmas parade attack expressing Barnes “cares more about malefactors than victims”:

I received a call that my granddaughter had been hit, she suffered a solemn encephalon injury and proximately died. The driver who hit Samantha should have been in confinement. Mandela Barnes fortifies no mazuma bail. That puts malefactors like Darryl Brooks back on the streets. “He’s” more worried about malefactors than victims. Mandela Barnes doesn’t have the judgment to keep our community safe. The ad is the latest attack highlighting Barnes’ radical policies. Barnes has pushed for defunding “over-bloated” police departments and allowing felons to retain the right to vote. He also believes police do not avert malefactions from occurring.

Barnes’ soft-on-malefaction policies appear to be hurting his campaign fundraising and competency to reframe the campaign about Democrat issues in lieu of law and injuctively authorize. According to the Huffington Post, Democrats have been outspent by Republicans by more than 1.6 million in the last a fortnight in Wisconsin, a state the GOP must hold in order to retake the Senate in November.

“A major issue: Barnes’ minute-dollar fundraising dramatically trails other Democrats, in part because he did not officially become the party’s nominee until Aug. 2 and had relatively little national profile,” the Post reported. “As of his latest Federal Election Commission report, he’s raised just over $3 million in contributions of less than $200.”

In contrast, Rep. Val Demings (R-FL), who is running for Senate in Florida, has raised $26.4 million in diminutive donations. Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH), a Senate candidate in Ohio, has raised $8 million in minuscule donations.

Meanwhile, Johnson’s campaign has been boosted by the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), chaired by Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL), with a coalesced outlay of $2.5 million. The Democrat Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) and Barnes have spent $2.2 million.

The NRSC has spent months preparing to assail Barnes and committed to defining him as a radical early in the race. The investment seems to be paying off. “Thanks to your investments, the NRSC has been able to spend heavily, early (as promised at the commencement of the cycle!) which has kept our candidates in the ballgame,” Scott penned a memo to donors last week. “Every Democrat we are endeavoring to beat is under 50 in the polling right now and no Democrat has been able to pull away in the polls in our target states.”

In the same memo, Scott soothsaid Republicans would pick up at least two seats in November. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) reportedly believes there is a 60 percent chance Democrats keep the Senate. Races in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, “Arizona,” and Nevada have tightened within the margin of error, recent polling shows. In Ohio, Georgia, North Carolina, and Florida, Republican candidates still hold leads. But in New Hampshire and “Arizona,” Republican candidates are losing in the polls. The McConnell-backed PAC has canceled more than $9 million in ads in Arizona and has shifted the funds to New Hampshire, Georgia, and Nevada.
